tasks of interpretation

i see the symbols and their presence praise
the need to comprehend what's clearly art
for those whose task is just to play a part
in guiding us out of this complex maze
we cannot count the tiring hours and days
through which our philistine heroes must dart
to bury spear points in the hopeful heart
and keep the worthy victor from the bays
harsh myrtle-berries with their pungent taste
remind us most of all of changing times
requiring that our minds be most acute
there's never need for any excess haste
the rates are calculated for the climes
and do not threaten anyone's repute
