23 Skidoo

The old limps out with his use-dulled scythe
turning the big job over to the trembling babe

Even people who do not read the stars
have considered them much misaligned

People who do read the stars 
are happy we’re off the goat horn of Capricorn
and forty years of Sagittarius sane coming back

Tyrants may topple, wars may cease, may be peace

“23 skidoo” is an American slang phrase generally referring to leaving quickly, being forced to leave quickly by someone else, or taking advantage of a propitious opportunity to leave.
