THE TRUE SPIRIT OF SATURNALIA

The true spirit of Saturnalia
Dies Natalis Invicti Solis
Drunken revelry;—bacchanalia
Orgiastic feast cum Dionysus
They cry to the Sun to come back faster
In honor of Janus, all things reversed
Masters become slaves, their slaves the master
Those who were last—the Meek?—shall now be first
How can Church fathers maneuver the day
For their Messiah who fell to the Earth
How make these Pagans emphasize the Birth?
They survey the Chaos and sagely say:
    'Convert this fest from rebirth of the Sun;
    Let it now be for the birth of the Son.'
