there have been superstitions
that the full moon drives one mad
it might cause rage or laughter
or to make one deeply sad
.
but is it purely folklore
or a scientific fact ?
have people done experiments
to see how we react ?
.
our brains are pretty watery
just like a little sea
so does the moon cause rising tides
that crest in lunacy ?
.
our water's not affected
by the pull of our dear moon
inside, we are a lake serene
you won't become a loon
.
in olden days we lived outside
and when a full moon crept
it might have caused insomnia
in times we should have slept
.
but if we burned a light bulb
every night above our head
we'd get the very same effect
do light bulbs wreck your head ?
.
i've come to this conclusion
and i think i've got it right
a full moon's an excuse
to those who want to howl all night
