Full Half

Many moons ago
A child was born before
Before the dawn of tomorrow
Though not in a manger
But like a messiah

The day dawns with dews
Dews of witty wisdom
Sunset dusk to dawn

Like every other pretty day
Beauty was unleashed
From heavenly heavens

Pretty roses red roses
Roses without thorns
A heart professing love 
Despising otherwise
Liberal mind with avowed liberty

A goddess in human
Fully equipped from
The internal to the external

A redeemer with redemption staff
An indispensable half
No! better a whole half

Because non could have been 
Better that you
