First Quarter Red Moon

Bright First Quarter Red Moon means it’s three months past June
But the night isn’t scary one fourth of the way.
It is one Fourth because that is all we can see.
It’s the First by Cartesian count, some would agree.
It is Red as earth’s mad shadow upon it lay.
It’s the night of the goon versus that of the coon.

As the Red Ass gets fuller, let’s say to one half
Is there anything possible that can be done
To not notice what all goes on up in that sky
And to not give a rat’s ass for not caring why?
I can keep the mind sharp… the heart focused on fun.
That quart butt in the sky is by now just a laugh.

I am not an astronomer. I just look up,
Something natural to most when there’s sky to behold.
I must know what I’m seeing by way of moon light
Could be just an illusion. That seems about right.
It is fascinating watching this moon grow old.
My advice for it is, “Suck it up, buttercup!”
