Apple Vs Bullet. - Poem by Tajudeen Shah

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
