Galileo’s Irony

POETRY FORMAT, 30 May 2016

Udaya R. Tennakoon – TRANSCEND Media Service

If the earth human survives is a globe, justice will pronounce
But the globe and the justice are contrast to the reality
If the mind well-dressed is in heart, then the humanity will beam
But the mind and the humanity are contrast to the reality

If the God is an absolute metaphor, it will be the world spirit
But the metaphor and spirit are contrast to the reality
If the equality is a mirror of human principle, difference could be respected
But the equality and the difference are contrast to the reality

If the vision of the Galileo’s eye, enlarges the truth and the history
But the science and the truth are blindfolded to the reality
If the modernity invents more and more to the new world’s balcony
But the meaning of the progress is less and less to the reality

If widening gap is a cycle, wealth and poverty will encounter a day
But the poverty in a vicious cycle is contrast to the riches of the reality
If the struggle is the sword of proletariats, bourgeoisie will be the contrary
But the praxis and the philosophy are contrast to the politics of the reality

If evolution finds an answer, glaciers on poles will make sinking ship of hopes
But the revolution for the inequity is aside of ignorance for the necessity
If these dichotomies end transforming, transcendence will be nature’s diversity
But extend of greediness and suffering from hunger are matchless to the unity
If the binary oppositions sit on the unbalance, it will be a rolling stone
But the world makes thousands of speeches on it to the airy organs
If the cry and sigh die in hunger, while withering the soul and the heart
But the rhythm for a song of real change dances as a guilty guest
