As the Blue-Moon rises

In the monolithic sky

It casts reflected light

On the dead and the lame.

The shadows, thus created,

Gave credence to the names

Of the ones that took the credit

But would not take the blame.

 

In this shadowed place

With smoldering embers abounding

The sea is seen, in-between,

The divided camps of fools.

And there among the rubble lies

Such sweet words of wisdom

About justice, equality,

Among a host of other rules.

 

Then the Blue Moon begins to set

For its cycle soon will end

And darkness falls on that place

Where Hope still comes to call.

 But not everyone sees the moon

For they live within The Cave

And all they know is what they've seen;

The shadows on the wall.
