The Rule of Nines




There are nine forms of the Dragon

And it has nine children


In the shadow of the Sphinx, there are

Nine bows for traditional enemies


An anvil takes nine days to fall

From Heaven to Earth

Or from Earth to the

Nine circles of Hell


The nine Ringwraiths appear and vanish

Like the Six Nines in Pi.


Let us plot the Consequences of Love

against your timorous Soul


Probability says that

There will be five nines to fit the curve

The decimal must be plotted separately

Depending on your State of Grace
