Polaris: A sailor's song

North Pacific storm waves (1989)
Polaris
A sailor's song

A sailor's song for us at sea

in times when spirits sag,

for us heirs of Aeneas 'neath

John Locke's or Gadsden's flag,

in times when seas bid welcome down

to Davy Jones' tomb,

this song of sweet Polaris:

star to point away from doom.

When Charon's ferry forward becks

to follow and obey;

Scylla, Charybdis starboard, port

are placed to block our way;

Kraken breaking the surface aft,

a course may still be found

with sure and sweet Polaris:

star to point to solid ground.

A steady star within the night

for us who choose to see,

for us who heed Historia

and still hear Liberty,

an “A is A” to base all else,

a truth to steer us by -

this: each word from our ruling class

is guaranteed a lie.

an “A is A” to base all else,

a truth to steer us by -

this: each word from our ruling class

is guaranteed a lie.
