Moon Set

The sun sets and the moon rises
in eternal cycles defined by nature.
So it is ~ this rhythm that soothes.
A reassurance of constant life

but, what if the moon sets and the sun rises?
Would that startle the world?
No, of course not
this polarity happens all the time.

For what rises must set and vice versa
only eternal night or eternal day
should not only startle but frighten.
The fools that tamper with nature should know.

We should slap them on the hand
just like little children who play with matches.
What they are playing with is not a game
its reality ~ that the rest of us must live in.
