A brief explanation of mythical/religious references may be needed. the countdown..from 12... are the 12 labors given to Heracles - Hercules.. they were actually 10..2 were added.. as his friends are supposed to have helped him. LOL
Heracles death was a sad one... he shot down Nessus, a centaur who attempted to rape his wife. the dying Nessus tricked his wife by saying that his blood carries a love potion that will grant fidelity to the one who it touches...later in a weaker moment..she makes her hubby don the shirt..hence Nessus' shirt....
it burns Heracles down to his bones.... the fifth stanza...is how his friend made a pyre n consigned him to ashes...sparing him the torture...n immortalizing his spirit.
Buddha.... Siddhartha... who must give up his family n kingdom for moksh..
Bodhisattva..is one set on the path to enlightenment.
The bible..Lucifer(Satan) cast out from heavens... & he has Beelzebub the arch angel for company..
the black sheep has too many loaded meanings.. LOL
the last one is on a betrayed bald Samson... who is powerless..

12, 11, 10…3, 2 …
The countdown petered down
My labors done
Stripped off Nessus’ shirt!
Down to my bones
Who should I now
Castigate to stone?

Give up the kingdom,
Oh! Prince Siddhartha!
Ah! Nirvana comes
With a price!

Is there
A Moksh!
For one does not follow
The shadow of Buddha!

Can Bodhisattva
Be Attained
By fathoming
Bottomless Pools of sins!

Is there
A Pyre
A fire
A friend
To consign
This lesser mortal!

Even damned Lucifer had
Beelzebub for a backrub!

The scarred wrists
Shall breathe unshackled
If only I rub, rub
Coax the damned
Tepid blood to return!

Cruel punishment
For the fattened black sheep
To be cast out of the manger
Sans his coat
At the anointed hour!

Ah! Sickly goat!
Remind yourself
You are a warm
Blooded mammal!

Spared the sacrifice
Re-learn lessons
Revive!
Survive!
Surmise!

The only wool
A pauper wears is
His coarse thoughts!
Encore!

The winter
Has almost
Petered out!
Cover ye head then
Bald Samson!
Warm words
For clothes!
