Treasure Island

Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya

Believing what you cannot prove


You cannot see the resulting gap

when electrons change their orbits

14 billion years back

when the earth was not as yet born

oxygen carbon nitrogen and hydrogen met

and the amino acid showed up

Mutation is an accident

And a monkey who knows in England or Scotland

had mutation in his germ cell

And a she monkey in his neighbourhood

had mutation in her germ cell too

And from them Cain and Abel were born

Eros and Thanatos were twins

But who knows Eros was the elder one

older than Thanatos by two hours

Such mutations donot happen anymore

And from who knows England or Ireland

Eros and Thanatos multipled

to forge the humanity as it is

spread all over the globe

Mutations do not happen any more

to pave the way to supermen to be born

They occur always to destroy

And the Thanatos is on the saddle

the brains of the scientists are its horses

Although radiation and chemotherapy only act

to destroy the healthy and the pious

and help the cancer cells to spread

the mounts of Thanatos

preach that they are the saviours

And believing what you cannot prove

you rush to death and disaster

after 24 years so called omniscience and omnipotence

Thanks to mans covenant with Mephistophilis
