FOR THE CHEER LEADER OF SCIENCE
The non-fiction writer said *art will not fix the global crisis and the vengeance
Neglect is reining down upon our dirty greasy planet.
I beg to differ.
I want to dip Mr. Bryson in the waters of
Huxley, Orwell, Atwood, Carson, and the words of
Colette that tell the world of the corresponding
Smells of the betrayed, jealous and lovesick.
Science has a fix but a “fix”
Denied its beauty – resolution
Because there is no profit
Ensuring the earth remains
Healthy for everyone.
Money’s to be made
Fat capitalists sucking the earth
Dry of its natural resources
With the help science.
In revolutions over time
Knowledge and passion is
Ignited by art
And the time is neigh
When art reveals the capitalists deniers
Who catch the money flung at solutions
Hiding it away in the pockets of those
With no need of a future world.
Art, in freedom
Will save us
When science, in chains
