When Saturn is in a certain position in the sky, it gives power to rule, even to the fool. My poem.

High up on the hillside,

The goat nibbles away.

It is at the top, and cannot hide,

Food is important for it, everyday.

 

It look down on those far below,

Knowing they cannot get so high.

Even when it rain or snow,

It is full of food, and will not die.

 

''I cannot go any higher,'' It says,

''To be in this position always pays.

But should one slip, after all,

The penalty is a heavy fall.''

 

 Make sure your grip is firm, and true,

You'll stay high, that's what you'll do.

Dare you cheat, or deny the low his right,

Watch how you fall with all your might.

 

Steady yourself, watch your footgrip,

Stay in place and do not slip.

Eat as much as you like, give some to the poor,

In this way you'll benefit, getting much more.
