Total Eclipse of the Moon

BAC5010C-BC9D-464D-A383-3314F09EE39DWhat is the nature of your trickery?
You are clearly using some form of witchery!
You have made the moon in the sky disappear,
Causing all of us to cry and cower in fear.
What demon tool is it that you use,
To make us all behave like fools?
Be warned that you have made a grave mistake,
And we are going to burn you at the stake.

You cannot burn me, don’t even try,
If you want your yellow boulder to shine in the sky.
It’s no witches trick that I implement.
Such a deception was never my intent.
I am a person of astronomy and so I allege,
That the moon will return if you watch the edge.
Returning your moon to you, that’s my thing,
And then you will bow down to me and kiss my ring.

    I forgot to mention… my favorite pet ever was Galileo. There are no edges to watch for.
