Converse with Verse Part 1: "How many stars do my poor eyes miss?"

Dr Abe V Rotor

1.The night is full of awe and wonder,
but how many stars do my poor eyes miss?
Yet my mind is set to explore and wander
in search beyond silence true peace.
Starry Night by Vincent of Van Gogh
2. It doesn't matter if our planet is green or blue
from outer space or from a hungry soul
living on a morsel, holding an empty bowl,
while images of bounty are virtually true.
3. Corrupting is civilization to mankind;
better was life the Noble Savage lived
in the Garden of Eden we've long envied -
sans want, sans war, sans evil of any kind.

4. All you give your cow and sheep
is an wide green, green meadow
away from your watch and shadow;
content they are - and your sleep.

5. Ask Ceres or the Mightiest of all,
if Nature keeps herself better if we depart,
with her housekeeping and her art -
Was Paradise redeemed after the Fall?

Ode to a GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)
My pet, in a sudden turnabout
went wild, its good nature gone!
This weird creature was born out
of the genius and madness of man.

7. the Drummer Boy to his master's will
marched with the flag behind him;
the flag drops, yet he, drumming still
fell, knowing only the battle hymn.

8. Youth, sweet memories you cherish -
whether the path you took is bright
or dark, or faded in the mist -
matters not in the end, if all's right.

9. To change our ways, hold your peace;
in his dungeon Gandhi prayed at ease;
bowed on a loom he wove the cloth
from the naked, the flag and his oath.
10. Truth we seek, its bulk lies under;
iceberg, it's tip not the real danger;
mum we all are, inside brews anger,
deafening silence sets as asunder.
