i’ve seen the sun eclipsed by the moon
it happened following the month of June
many say i know not what I wanted
some say i was done too soon
i only know I started – upon a ship of fools

sailors fall upon the winds
a’blowin’ through their minds
and sink deep beneath dark waters
as anchor’s chain unwinds

weighted down by forged chain
from carols long ago
stopping only when bottom’s hit
the why? i do not know

but gratitude i freely give
for folly teaches all
and i’ve but learned from where i’ve burned
rising only because i fall

to bathe a knave
to forgive and love
to let our peace endure
and know for now
while we’re all in hell
that laughter is a cure

Happy April Fool’s Day
