The 7 Days of CryAction 6: 1756-1803

He himself then blessed
his miniature model,
Be encircled by children
colonize the whole planet
[1760] and exert ecology.
Feel responsible for fish
underwater, fowls in the air,
all Talking Animals too
are your suitable subjects.”
Adam hardly existed and
already was a sovereign
nor was this authority
written on dry wood
or in a paper protocol
[1770] easy to be bypassed
but Nature herself had
God’s acts in attachment:
Emperors Adam and Eve
rule over lands and sea
they will explore space.”
We were born Basiles
so why serve our passions
and despise our dignity
and be subjects of Sin?
[1780] We prefer the prison
of Satan in spite of our
having been appointed
the chiefs of creation.
Why do we throw away
that which in our ousía
is most remarkable?
To our empire, in theory,
no limits were left:
Look at your backbone
[1790] you will see wings!
Nothing can brake brains.
We can fly beyond not only
the Earth’s atmosphere
but the stars themselves,
far less deep indeed is
the ocean than our genius
capable of setting cables
across undersea sands and
studying abyssal biology
[1800] before resurfacing
like Captain Nemo.
This is how human minds
look after God’s garden.
