Double Helix - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah

Double Helix

Take the twisted ladder and
Climb your way to heaven
Or slip ingloriously
Into the dungeons of hell
Man, you are destined
Either for greatness
Or for a fabulous fall
Wonder what shape
Was the ladder
That brought Lucifer down
Was it a Double Helix or
Perfectly Round
But either way
The zigzag sugary steps
Must have been the same
