While These Visions Did Appear

When people are just people,
the ducks would return to the pond, it was agreed.

That was a long time ago.
The ducks gave up and went elsewhere.

The moon, meanwhile, never took part in such agreements.
It was immoral to meddle in mortals,
the night before eclipse she said.
So half of people were listed as mothers and maid.
The other half claimed the rest.

The other half ravished and raged and forgot to cry.
The other half made the water muddy and shouted “It is mine!”

When people are just people,
The ducks will return to the pond,
And the earth will release her bond.

The other half will cry,
and the terrible eye that looks over us, will comply,

The ponds will fill the air with the giggles of ducks.
And the dawn that day, will wish us good luck.
