โ€œYOU CANโ€™T DO IT! YOU JUST CANโ€™T!โ€ Sunday: 02/11/2018

โ€œYou just canโ€™t de-feat gravity!โ€ She kept-on-saying-to-me.

โ€œYou canโ€™t, you canโ€™t, you canโ€™t, you canโ€™t! It is so plain to see!



Gravity!โ€ With fire in her eyes;

โ€œNo, no – you canโ€™t defeat IT,โ€ So, I-whispered through her cries:

โ€œYOU CANโ€™T โ€ฆโ€ and, then, I edged a word,

In between the fun,

โ€œWhy,โ€ I asked – โ€œdo-I-wanna-defeat-it? Why, my darling HON?โ€

Itโ€™s like the WIND! Some cultures teach: The Windโ€™s a Real Scourge!

And battle MUST be waged on IT:

From-it, we MUST be purged!

โ€œBut, WHY,โ€ I asked, โ€œmust we fight – and war for victory?

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

Canโ€™t we all just get along – make gravity our friend?

And have a fine alliance – and the war can finally end?โ€

โ€œBut: NO!โ€ she screamed – โ€œI (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?โ€

โ€œWell, darling, IF we make a truce, and make all force(s) our friends,

Perhaps, in our co-operations, we will not get โ€˜the bends!โ€™

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!
