He trumps with masculine beginnings
under Mercury’s will to command
Renegados: heart, mind, and soul
He is skill’s regal teacher
playing will’s red suit
against a black intellect.
His motive is untainted innocence
draping red passion and experience
unto humans’ conscious existence.
He belts his waist- a divine bridge
for both worlds: spirit and human
manifesting desires into reality.
Eternity is his tiara shining
over elements of an alchemist table
fit for a banquet for three players.
Wearing mismatched red and white lilies
for slippers of majesty: good and evil
He leaves you plagued with creativity.
Drinking a cup of emotional fulfillment
filled with imagination and beauty.
He will dance you to productivity.
He eats from a pentacle of brilliance
molded for perfection, baked in patience-
to serve you excellence and practicality.
Armed with the sword of mental clarity
his judgments are sound and canny
with ideas so profound with relativity.
He is master of illusion and duality
a shaman and a charlatan prodigy-
who’s game only for the witty!
