I am Capricorn,
the sign of the goat.
Stubborn, hairy, smells bad?
Not very auspicious.
Born in the Year of the Rat.
no sense of fine cuisine?
My tarot card is The Devil.
Need I say more about that one?
“You are a star seed,” said the psychic.
“A star feed?”
“Yes, a star seed. Didn’t you know?”
No, no I didn’t. I’ll have to look that up.
I was born on the fourth of the month.
Compassionate, nature-loving, highly ethical.
Okay, a little boring, but I like it much better than
goats, rats and devils.
Zodiac, Chinese calendars, Tarot,
I think I’ll take up numerology.
