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.
