Oranges And Grapes
Oranges and grapes refuse to grow in the cold.
Today I sing and dance, refuse to grow old.
Yet all the same, time is tyrant and ruthless,
Unfolds my wrinkling years, it is relentless.
Now and then the lots seem to be gentle and kind,
But alloyed with fate the somnambulist is blind.
Luck and fortuity might act as a soubrette,
Life spins our fate like roulette in a film set.
Still, let us drink to life, celebrate, and be glad,
Let us sing and dance today, refuse to be sad.
Oranges and grapes do not grow in the cold,
A warm wind ties ribbons to maple ...
Science: A False Mirror
In logic facts are true or false,
Black or white.
But in real life facts are matters
of degree and they are often gray.
Now bear in mind that science follows
the rules of logic- an artificial system
of mathematical symbols- and thus it fails
to grasp that the true nature of reality
is seldom black or white.
