The Fool Moon

THE FOOL MOON

THE FOOL MOON HAD TAKEN THE LEAD,
IN MARSHALING THE WORLD,
IN THE DARKENING DAYS OF THE EARTH'S SUCCESSION.
SUCH A REBELLIOUS FOOL,
TO TAKE ON THE ALL MIGHTY SUN,
MORE IN HOPE THAN IN REALITY,
FOR THE FOOL MOON KNEW,
HE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE REFUGE IN THE UNFOLDING.

BUT FOR NOW HE FELT HIS INFLUENCE WAXING,
KNOWINGTHE MIGHTYIRE HE WOULD BRING ABOUT.
FOR THE SUN WOULD COWER THE FOOL MOON INTO SUBMISSION,
NO LONGER TO MISPLACE THE KING,
DISPELLINGHOPE THAT THE SUN'S ACTIONS THIS YEAR,
WHILE TENDING HIS OTHER CHILDREN,
WOULD RESULT IN THE FOOL MOON PREVAILING AT LAST.

FOR IS IT NOT WRITTEN, FOR IS IT NOT DONE,
THAT THE SUN WOULD BUILD AND BUILD AND REGAIN,
UNTIL THE FOOLISH MOON WOULD TURN AWAY,
AND SUBSIDE INTO SUBSERVIENCE,
BOW IN REVERENCE AND RESPECT TO THE WONDER,
OF THE ALL POWERFUL DENNISON OF LIGHT?
