Saturnalia

By Maz Hedgehog

Live

Like you

Can’t get hurt

Live for next year

Plan past the solstice

Old age is your birthright

I will keep you safe

Give you a land

That calls you

Dearest,

Love

With the

Knowledge that

This night will end

The new sun will rise

Your children will join you

I will give you space

To move beyond

Surviving

Give you

Time

To start

Rejoicing

Honour this week

Eat well and drink deep

Pour scorn on your masters

Raise up your voices

I will give you

This temple

As your

Home
