"...I wish none of this had happened." "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

As the world falls down
Coulomb's law cannot save you.
Your numbers have left; they cannot function
in this new habitat.
You are not suited to this alien environment,
and all the knowledge you have absorbed
as a sponge, a soggy doormat,
is of no use or vitality.
I find you,
a fish out of water
trying to learn how to breathe,
in air without oxygen
I contemplate leaving you
as you have always left me,
whisked away by your own
brains and business,
but instead I take you into my
hands, and drop you
in a bubble of a pool,
to swim between lilies of rehabilitation.
When you learn to breathe again,
perhaps you will see that
some things have not been ensnared
by science,
and we can try to coexist together.

The author's comments:
I did not like my physical science class last year at all, and wrote this during the class, somewhat expressing my dislike towards the subject and my teacher. In a way, it is a love poem, and could certainly be, if it was not implied here that it is otherwise.
