a full moon in Capricorn

thunder moon buck moon whatever you call it

it calls us to a new age where all our freedoms

will be denied us

and your average jackass and janette will embrace

the kings of the world

the masters of the universe

who control the stick and carrot so expertly

so remorselessly

so utterly and absolutely selfishly

that 'pride' is too mild a word to describe

their greed and power-madness

(maybe 'pathological' is more to the point

more precise)

as has been said

ambition without morality is dangerous to life itself

and how many masters and slaves

will face their reckonings with any understanding?

I've lost my capacity to care

I just look out the window on this dry comfortable evening

at this brilliant full moon in Capricorn

in the summer when the new dispensation started kicking in

and I am 'old school' enough to say

to hell with it

and to just fill my eyes with the soft brilliance

of the moon

as it has ever been

the subconscious peace reflecting

the blaze of the raging sun
