Augury


Religion demonized woman,
Caused the snake to rattle and the earth to quake.
With dawn of the letter to man,
Nature never knew before such a fake!

It is now a power game,
To control power of the purse!
Greed enticed by fame,
And fortune eyes a man's curse.

Before man crafted leather Books,
Eve and snake were life-giving symbols
And antiquity displayed in marble their looks,
And sought Pythia's prophecies and her signals.

Each time Adam is in a lecturing mood,
Guilt and gridlock cloaked God's true religion.
Poetry is God's persona of womanhood,
While testosterone from fears speak in pidgin!

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
