Convulsion

Convulsion in the air tonight
tremors in the hills
rising tide engulfing
time to pay the bills

Serpent stirs from dreaming
about to shed his skin
sleeping gods are waking
chaos dribbles in

Pandora’s picked her lock box
Trickster’s on the loose
Genie broke her bottle top
Raven flew the coop

Restless growing hunger
anger running deep
time to pay the piper
neglected ways to reap

Too long, too few, too many
cauldron is abubble
change is on the warming wind
And oh are we in trouble
