Aquarius had its chance to bless the ages,

But its simplicity grew complex on its own.

Peace became the signature of deception

 And it wasn't long before everyone was stoned.


There is no justice for the trillions that have died

And the few that brought it on just walk away,

Their abusive use of power and of flaunted riches

Paints their world, as they see it, in shades of gray.


Does Taurus see its place in devastation?

It is as selfish and as charming as the Ram.

Shall the Moon not get the cherished invitation

To the revival and the killing, of the Sacrificial Lamb?


The blood planet never sees a sunset

And the stars that tip the scales fade away.

A million children hold out their crippled hands,

There is no bread and fish for them today.
