Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
"Arcturus" is his other name -
I'd rather call him "Star"!
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
I slew a worm the other day,
A "Savan" passing by
Murmured "Resurgam" - "Centipede"!
"Oh Lord, how frail are we"!

I pull a flower from the woods -
A monster with a glass
Computes the stamens in a breath -
And has her in a "Class"!

Whereas I took the Butterfly
Aforetime in my hat,
He sits erect in "Cabinets" -
The Clover bells forgot!

What once was "Heaven"
Is "Zenith" now!
Where I proposed to go
When Time's brief masquerade was done
Is mapped, and charted too!

What if the "poles" should frisk about
And stand upon their heads!
I hope I'm ready for "the worst" -
Whatever prank betides!

Perhaps the "kingdom of Heaven's" changed.
I hope the "Children" there
Wont be "new fashioned" when I come -
And laugh at me - and stare!

I hope the Father in the skies
Will lift his little girl -
"Old fashioned"! Naughty! Everything!
Over the stile of "pearl"!

    Who never lost, are unprepared
    A Coronet to find!
    Who never thirsted
    Flagons, and Cooling Tamarind!
    Who never climbed the weary league -
    Can such a foot explore
    The purple territories
    On Pizarro's shore?

    How many Legions overcome -
    The Emperor will say?
    How many Colors taken
    On Revolution Day?

    How many Bullets bearest?
    Hast Thou the Royal scar?
    Angels! Write "Promoted"
    On this Soldier's brow!
