Universal Muse

Within every creature there exists,
Nature’s laws composed in lists.
For no creature can refuse,
To obey the universal muse.

The mouse running here to there,
Will tell it straight — Tell it fair.
“There is mayhem to ensue,
When the frail become untrue.”

The sharks swimming sea to sea,
Tell the truth that sets men free.
“To live with freedom abound,
Keep the soul high over ground.”

In the beginning there were but two,
Making laws to give what’s due.
Whence they came no one can say,
Me-thinks they came to show us the way.

The Lady who slumbers here,
Leans to whisper in your ear.
“The long awkward path of life,
Solicits no easy strife.”

The Lord who wears thorns and crown,
Shines his light upon the town.
“Melody in life and play,
Brings peace to those who obey.”

There is a lacuna that exists,
Of life and death — the abyss.
Lord and Lady guide the way,
For those of us who wander astray.
