Song of the Hour

Song of the hour,
Be mine,
Wedded in power,
Be thine,

Solstice of celebration,
See now,
Equinox of surrender,
See right,

Sudden and forever,
Take heed,
Long in the hour,
Take time,

Suffused in morals,
Douse now,
Soaked in embers,
Douse not,

Sordid with horror,
Keep quiet,
Thump as a coward,
Keep lying,

Summary of a kind,
Say less,
Essays in life,
Say more,

Stake in the center,
Beat twice,
Scythe on the edges,
Beat thrice,

Silver-tongued siren,
Come once,
Slippery as white ice,
Come twice,

Strongman your flower,
Reeks yonder,
Huddled in a corner,
Reeks hither
