Ashtami And Navami

The day is Ashtami
eight days from New Moon
and Full Moon.

Inauspicious and despised
by all. Lord Krishna
was born on an Ashtami.

The ninth day is Navami
not as bad as eighth.
Lord Rama’s birth falls on Navami.

These two days
propose awe and fear.
Terrible to many.

Reasons seem ethereal.
No one can define
Poor old days.

The birthdays of the Lords
do not bring remission.
They are dreadful days, anyway.

Every month has
two  Ashtami
and two of Navami.

Weddings do not take place
no house warming, for that matter
nothing good happens.

Superstitious I consider
what did these days do?
I am bewildered.
