“YOU CAN’T DO IT! YOU JUST CAN’T!” Sunday: 02/11/2018

“You just can’t de-feat gravity!” She kept-on-saying-to-me.

“You can’t, you can’t, you can’t, you can’t! It is so plain to see!



Gravity!” With fire in her eyes;

“No, no – you can’t defeat IT,” So, I-whispered through her cries:

“YOU CAN’T …” and, then, I edged a word,

In between the fun,

“Why,” I asked – “do-I-wanna-defeat-it? Why, my darling HON?”

It’s like the WIND! Some cultures teach: The Wind’s a Real Scourge!

And battle MUST be waged on IT:

From-it, we MUST be purged!

“But, WHY,” I asked, “must we fight – and war for victory?

To defeat One-and-All, I mean, come on! REALLY?

Can’t we all just get along – make gravity our friend?

And have a fine alliance – and the war can finally end?”

“But: NO!” she screamed – “I (we) must win


an-nounce my (our) sure defeat,

GRAVITY IS PULLING ME, I simply can NOT meet,

On-fields-of-golden-solitude and draw a fateful truce!

You think that non-resistance will help us get cut loose?”

“Well, darling, IF we make a truce, and make all force(s) our friends,

Perhaps, in our co-operations, we will not get ‘the bends!’

And we can then go to the floor of every mighty ocean,

AND SAIL, Up-into-the-wind, To find perpetual motion!

And levitate, as we please, with-gravity-on-our-side,

Relaxing, You Know, It might work!
