SaturnaliaLet them come, that we might rejoiceSaturnalia by SmokelessPowder
with no bridles to fear,
and better lend the primal voice
our ever-tingling ear.
Let the lupercal make its way,
that naked young with whips
might bless the girls with words of play
and wolf's lament on lips.
Cast down the master, let the slave
have his whim satisfied.
By command of Saturn we pave
horizons deep and wide!
If folly knocks, open the door!
Coy matron, why resist?
For Saturn, be our sacred whore!
Sing, love, dance, shake your fist!
First there was chaos, then came Night,
with Erebus, her kin.
Yet now we spurn their daughter, Light,
and seek chaotic din.
From cultivated fields to caves,
from palaces to sties,
from sandy seas to Ocean's waves,
we celebrate likewise.
Be quick, and snatch a kiss from life:
order will rise again,
and a quiet time will be rife
to say: "I lived, but fain".
