The Mischievous Moon

Updated on February 28, 2013

Once a month waxes the moon

to the song of his eerie, alluring tune,

unveiling his face, in the darkness, bright,

inspiring mayhem throughout the night.


Like the siren's song that beckons the soul,

moonlight exacts a mysterious toll.

Neither man nor beast is able to flee,

for the full moon awakens insanity.


The fairies dance by the pale moon's glow,

and wolves will howl in a mournful tableau,

and all inclined to mayhem's delight

will come to life in the pale moon's light.


The oceans are swayed by the moon's control,

as shadows reach from their hidden shoal

in the innocent gaze of the full moon's face

that transforms the earth into mayhem's place.


Yes, once each month, waxes the moon

to sing a haunting, alluring tune

in silent whispers of mischievous glee,

he ignites the embers of insanity.
