    Listen June,
    you don’t belong here.
    You are young, you are strong.
    Walk in the sunshine for awhile.
    You are noon.
    This place is always midnight,
    though you fight all that’s wrong
    I tell you this is but the first of nine.
    You can’t cross over
    this hated river
    until your bones are buried in the ground.
    It is not time.
    It's not yet your December.
    You cannot see the face
    dreaded even by the immortal gods,
    in her stony palace
    beneath the silver pillars;
    her name alone
    is an oath to Jupiter.
    The water is so wide,
    you can’t cross over,
    for your mother or your father
    or even for your lover.
    You can’t cross over
    this poison water.
    You can’t evade
    the hell-hounds at the gate.
    You dare not meet the child
    of the ocean tides of fate.
    And even if you could -
    and even if you did,
    If you crossed over
    this hated river
    then never, never, never
    would you return.
