Spring 2020 Poem

The Acting Angel has come down among us
from on high with a revelation.

Since before history we have invoked spring gods,
raising unblemished lambs
to their flaming alters
so they might provide fertile seasons.
Now the Great Lord Dow has decreed
that high priests from the investor class
must sacrifice lungs of our elders
so the tender sprigs of commerce may flourish.
