Go Tell The Planets - Poem by ONOJA ANTHONY

Come see the wonderful love in space and time
These harmony and tally of beauty in cold nights
They are his and he is ours, Oh! the love of our Creator
Then came down from Olive and drove us into darkness
They settled in our galaxies and taunt us forever
Away from lucidity, please forget the Most High
Lust after the gods of strings and mountains
Since the planets now habours the fallen stars
We shall give them hope no more
Mercury, orbit your sun, gaze at us no more
Venus, house them in your ruined, embrace them like earth did
Earth, Oh! the beautiful gem, how could you let them rule you?
Mars, their anger made you burned, now you became red like scarlet
Jupiter, they now honour you as god in deluge
Neptune, you stood so low to allow them beguiled you in their lies
Uranus, you came so close to the truth but fall off its brink
Saturn, you became their whore, you now harbours' their brevity
Pluto, we wept when they say you were absorbed into the night skies
Nibiru, we heard you are coming to merge with earth
Like the day we meet our end in the night skies
Eternity came so close, now we see the fallen stars from afar
In their ships of wrath, they left us wounded like preys
Then we seize to exist no more in the constellations

    Eternity came so close, now we see the fallen stars from afar
    In their ships of wrath, they left us wounded like preys
