A New Sky

New things destroy old, new

peoples push past, herd those

unkilled into corners, behind

mountains or walls where they live in

marginal lands, praying they remain

marginal.

 

As on Earth, so in Heaven: the

stars swept from Sumer, Babylon, Attica,

Rome, the Arab Lands, cower in the

ultimate margin, waiting for the

assault of us modern folk on their

last shred of dignity, when

 

The Plough will be beaten into The

Shopping Trolley; Orion retrained as The

Security Guard, his billy-club swinging

uselessly on his over-laden belt;

Cancer multiplied into The Crabs,

infesting poor Virgo, now just

The MILF, while nearby The

Tom who was Leo scratches for fleas.

 

Carthago delenda est, and all things

must pass but I hope that somewhere

out beyond The Water Feature, under the

Big W (no doubt TM), and

buried in the great blastoma of the

Milky Way, a small star clutches its

angular, unpronounceable Arabic name in its

fiery heart.
