The First Moon of Elatia

    The First Moon of Elatia

    ‘twas the first moon of elatia

    before dolore lost her bearing

    It wasn’t that her road had turned

    it’s just that she stopped caring


    her burdening darkened overload

    vanished in bright haze

    no more, some painful tale of woe

    just blurry halcyon days


    Bayer, Squibb and Eli Lilly

    once courted her with verve

    and so also would have Pfizer

    but he had lost his nerve.


    the dawning of elatia came

    with sudden threat to all

    for once unburdened by distress

    they had no cause to call.


    viagara slid, zoloft collapsed

    ephedra scant maintained

    starbucks soon tried out topless 

    but baristas weren’t retained.


    for no one needed uppers

    no one, some capsuled crutch

    as dolore fell aswoon in love

    with elatia’s healing touch.


    twas the first moon of elatia

    as this age made final swoon

    when we all survived its blood red morn

    before her sun arose at noon.

    Yeah, but I don't think the advertisers would like what I did to their car! Hah Harv

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
