First-Person Poetry

I have a secondary
Meaning: an oracular
Device, never intended
To sing mellifluously
But to offer harsh riddles
In indifferent prosody.
I'm not the sage I wanted

Made available to me.
I am the sage you wanted
To ignore repeatedly.
Who knows whether the Urim
Means yes, whether the Thummim
Means guilty? We must consult
The random to find the mean.
