  The Great Spirit, depressed about his ruined earth,
moved on when vacancy Above occurred.
The crystal views and friends and godly mirth
restored his happy mood, so long deferred.

He joined in games the Grecian Royals played.
Then, over nectar, praised them for their action.
He mused, "My tribal subjects were betrayed
and I could not respond with satisfaction.

until you searched your archives, Gods of Greece.
You found for me a just and painful answer
for thieves of sacred smoke and pipes of peace.
Their fate, so logical and fair --lung cancer."

Shared Views
(Onda Mel form)

Love was Dante's theme
hard to discern
when people burn
in Satan's realm of pain and steam

As he ascended from that fright
his vision cleared
as Heaven neared
L equal mc squared seemed right.
