Go Down Moses poem

Moses goes down the mountain
with horns upon his forehead.

Went up a man, but he descends
a deep-sea diver, Cousteauian,

holding the deepest of deep breaths
grasping two ingots of stone

to weigh him down, wondering if
he's really ready to encounter

the grotesque forms that sealife takes
upon the abyssal floor.
