And we go
...forth into a new week
a shorter week,
a week with no working Monday
(for most of us)

and a new week for love,
or another week waiting for love
a week for pain
a week for drilling
(oil or bad filling)
a week for life
a week for kicking dogs of war
a week for weeping
a week for finding bones
a week for markets
a week for death
a week for terror
a week for politicians
a week for boozing
a week for losing
a week to start
a week to drop (dead or otherwise)
a week to sleep in
a week to turn in
a week to pray
a week to stray
(perhaps beyond the Milky Way?)
a week for military
a week for tanks
a week for bombs
a week of tears
a week of tear gas
a week of booming powers
a week of blooming flowers
a week for leptons crashing
a week for charmed baryons
a week to hide

a final week of May
a week of your own
and it's only 2002

... but I still love you.

DELUSIONS Pragmatic Realism by Stan Law (aka Stanislaw Kapuscinski)

Dedicated to Richard Dawkins,in gratitude for many hours of enjoyable reading. While he and I dont always see eye to eye, the doctor might find, here, additional arguments for his..
