Ode

Was the manuscript going to be a hoax or a codex cipher
He was appointed to the imperial distillery
Then placed to take charge of the botanical gardens and be a personal physician
Linguistic patterns of language
Contextual arrangements of notes and words
The words broken down into letter by letter character cipher
Awkward to explain except as an attempt to hide information
He couldn’t give a hoax to his country origins
Verbose cipher perpetually throughout it must be
He enjoyed being a chief of the imperial distillery
He loved to study plants throughout his walks in the gardens
He would make notes and draw sketches
Agenda fuelled by a moral desire to make good on the deal
The arrangements others had made
He felt somewhat indebted
Like a Greek shorthand creating a second level of cipher
Giving an authentic cultural voice.
