Full Moon Fever

causes lovers’ quarrels
from near to far away
and wildness in the soul
that nothing can belay

the tidal waves to roar
riptides growing stronger
makes the bold the bolder
on a magnetic lunar day

with quakes in the trembling earth
as tectonic plates begin their play
with shifting boulders rolling
and mudslides on their way

wakens up the witches
from wherever they may lay
to help bestir their evil
as their potions’ powers grow

calls up the vampire’s spirits
from where they hide from day
inciting their wicked thirst
for human blood to flow

let us try to rest now
tucked back into the bed
while madness rushes about
inside our burning head
