Default The Thrush


Inverse canst not befall
That potent Prosperity—
Whose sources are inferior,
Whilst soon as Adversity,—

A Diamond overtakes
In far—Middle Eastern Implements—
Misfortune has no grounds—
Could mar it, once found—

Canst not, although technically correct sounds clumsy, what is so wrong with can’t. By using the archaic, especially in the first line, sounds pretentious. Now WTF? This ain’t like any itch I’ve ever had.

I've got questions, the poem's title "thrush" and the words in-verse, in-ferior and in (stand alone), is that deliberate?

I think 'canst' is probably an abbreviation of 'Canesten'...

(if you've got it bad, then it really is 'potent prosperity')

That's ok, that means you have answered the question, but not to worry

Well, I could definitely explain my question better but this will only demonstrate an interpretation, ahem, thrush in some circles can be thought of as yeast infection found inside a certain anatomy but then thrush in other circles can mean a bird. If one were an infection-based person or an ornithologist-based person the interpretation of the poem may differ.

lol, definitely not an infection-b or ornithologist-b person. slang for it can be female popstar as well. just another definition.
