Saturn: Lord of the Rings

It was an early August 12th of closing date

When Earth’s outcome at Saturn’s spinning rate

Shed light on the people as Ra pricked his ears

To eavesdrop on Nostradamus’ arrears

El had nothing on him but the plight of a man

With too sticky of ears and eyes to pen

The end of the Mayan calendar

December 21st of this year

And this was no joke, there’s an open page

Unwritten by a disastrous sage

We can begin new again

Or fall down the devil’s den

The choice some say was already made

Or fate was never a valid grade

Osiris protected the final third of a mass

Too small or to great preached the ghost of Douglass

Because no one is chosen supreme

Or they die from their own names scholars agree

We’ve all been secretly worshiping together

How It’s rings will affect our fickle weather

And the cat sits upon it with a supernatural—

If one doesn’t walk like a statue—

Key to a door that unlocks certain dates

And one must be careful when she mates

Her offspring are neither good nor evil nor in between

For her electricity transmits and her eyes are keen

She dilates vertical or horizontal

And if caught in the rain, we’re responsible

For a connection from he to she or it to the unknown

And for that we all have grown

In a smoldering August 12th dawn

There’s peace and the caveats have all gone.

-Michael Ferguson Head (8/12/12)

      I like this poem. It flows well, easy reading, and makes one think deeper than just surface first impression. Well done, Michael.
