Change The World In 5 Hours: Reachable Star


REACHABLE STAR
OR CHANGE THE WORLD IN FIVE HOURS

Henry went to hospital
Twas Bethesda Naval
and took a picture of an ape
in a restraining chair.
And took it to an international
picture wire
called Black Star
which sent it round the world..
and Gandhi saw and knew
that violated was the treaty
.. and she cancelled monkey export
.. because Henry in 5 hours
.. cared to reach for
.. one bright and reachable... star!

-------------

(Henry Spira throughout his life
taught others where to place the
Archimedes lever with which to
move the world. His tactics were so
effective that his teacher, Peter
Singer, wrote a book about him.)

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
