Poetry: Zodiac Foibles
There some friends of mine
They certainly test your patience.
Shining way up high, they sigh
And form lovely constellations.
Aries is a daredevil
Impulsive and foolhardy
Selfish and quick-tempered
He often ruins the party.
And Taurus doesn’t budge
Self-indulgent and greedy.
So possessive and so jealous
His girlfriend calls him needy.
Let’s not forget tense Gemini
Twins sly in their cunning.
Nervous and inconsistent
Superficial always sunning.
Cancer’s touchy and moody
Always clinging onto life.
Both Changeable and emotional
Some Prozac would calm her strife.
Pompous Leo so patronizing
Bossy and too interfering.
Dogmatic in his intolerance
His bad breath is room clearing.
Worry wart fussy Virgo is
A conservative perfectionist.
So overcritical and so harsh.
crumbs on the floor never missed.
Libra the gullible flirtatious girl
Easily influenced and changeable.
She so pretty, but so indulgent
Loves to be taken upon the table.
Like Taurus we have Scorpio
Resentful compulsive so obstinate.
Secretive obsessive and jealous
He’ll argue with you till it’s late.
Sagittarius is foolishly optimistic
Careless and superficial
Irresponsible and tactless
blows his paycheck, every nickel.
Depressing Capricorn is miserly
Pessimistic and so demanding.
Conservative grudging depression
No one around him likes standing.
Aquarius intractable and contrary
Perverse in his loner’s detachment.
Unemotional his eccentricity
Isolate girls from their enchantment.
And finally Pisces so idealistic
Vague escapist passions kept secretly.
Weak-willed follower easily led
Lives with Puff in the land Honalee.
And so is writ, my tender devotion
For constellations twelve in motion.
And coming soon, in passing time
With kinder words for them I’ll rhyme.
