We Will Do the Same
I wrote this poem in the 60s’ when I was in high school. My English teacher was so impressed with it that he talked me into joining our school year book staff. By the time I was a senior, I was editor-in-chief of our school annual. Even though I enjoyed writing, I had both an ability and love for science. Therefore, I became a scientist so I could raise and support a family. Now that I’m retired, I’ve started writing once again. I have one published biotechnical thriller novel, entitled “Green Power”. I just completed my second novel in the same genre, “The True Virus”, and in the process of getting it published. Think of how things were in the 60s’. We had folk songs instead of rap. Young students were speaking out and we still had the threat of nuclear war. So with that setting here’s the poem I wrote back then.
We Will Do the Same
We live on a sphere We know not where It may disappear But none will care
As night will fall And we suffer the pains We then shall crawl Having lost our canes
As we crawl away From where we came As we settle to stay We will do the same
