An Act Of Poetry
Ruin is what we need -
Despair is what we feed
Upon in poetry
A shock resets the nerves -
Helps remould the curves
Of written art
Catharsis helps portray -
Acting out a play
Tears or hidden fears
Release the bottled years
To ink a page:
The pen be our salvation.

Your intellect humbles with shattering blow!
Omnipotent, you are at one with the world.
There's no need to seek, as you already know:
Explained, reconciled, all so neatly unfurled.
Those complex equations are pliable toys,
And yours just to play with and loosen your mind.
Hypotheses and theories are also your boys -
In your world, together, all cosily enshrined.
