Panic - Poem by John Bannister Tabb

It struck the signs of the Zodiac,
Around the immovable Man
Who stands in front of the Almanack
To show his interior plan.


The Scorpion attacked the Bull,
The Bull aroused the Lion;
The Crab by their tails
Flung the Fish in the Scales,
Where they floundered as on a gridiron;
The Billy Goat went for the Gemini twins;
The Ram made a rush at Aquarius;
And a narrow escape had the Virgo's shins
From the shaft of her beau Sagittarius.
