Apple Vs Bullet.

Millions of apples dropped,
Before and after in history.
Gravitation theory could escape
The dark castle of ignorance
Only when an apple knocked
Sir Issac Newton's head.
A decoy that changed an old notion.
Many a political and social systems
Must get such knocks to clear off
Their dark notions.
The mass of a bullet
Can never compete an apple.
But the speed could be fatal,
For changes immediate and sensible.

    It was necessary for an apple to fall on Newton's head to change a fallacious old notion! In the same way bullets should be pelted to bring in positive changes! But then will it be a productive and positive strategy? I don't think! Any way, a beautiful poem! (Report) Reply

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
