A NEW SUN (CRAZY STANZAS)

Dawn is clearing the path of the new sun
After filling the hole of the old
Its tears are of hope and despair
Could the new be a replica of the old?

II
The old sun died with time
The earth pulling on it the cover of darkness
Pushing it to set prematurely
Aided by some clouds who cushioned it
What are palms concealing in a fist
Concerning the future of the new?

III
Dust say the old sun insulted it
Calling it mud even in its dryness
Heating when rain arrested it
Helping not after its stir into mud
So helped to pull on it doomed curtains

IV
Water says the old sun stole its coolness
Turning it into floating air with no known space
The little left of her becoming homes for insects
As its citizens were haunted and hunted to feed monsters
Others murdered to sink into rot
All through, the old sun shone brightest
To give its enemies visibility

V
Some clouds claimed they were footmats
They lived in the sky but were threatened with pushes
What was their trouble to hobble while gobbling curses?
What was their crime to be treated less than silver lining?
So they too helped to pull down the curtains of the old sun

VI
There are expectations churned into over-jubilation
The new sun in its dawn is overwhelmed
Most of the earth stay by its side
Other worlds watch in anticipation
Looking for the duration when its popularity will fall
Looking for times when its light will soar
Looking for the time when all elements will gather to pour their displeasure
But for now, a new moon rises
And many hope for a vitamin D favour
