POST-ATOMIC

 

                                      In the post-atomic society

                                      There will be no particles,

                                      For the proton aspect of the atom

                                      Will be taboo to minds

                                      Accustomed to electron freedom.

                                      There will be only wavicles,

                                      And so 'matter' will have been de-materialized,

                                      In accordance with the transcendental bias of

                                      A post-atomic society.

                                      As nuclear fission split the atom,

                                      So republicanism wrenched man away from

                                      The galactic-world-order in which

                                      The atomic integrity at the basis of life prevailed.

                                      No longer would proton humans

                                      Lord it over an electron majority,

                                      As stars dominate planets.

                                      For in the post-atomic age

                                      Such a majority must be

                                      Free from diabolic constraint

                                      In order that it may be set on

                                      A direct course for transcendence, and hence

                                      The attainment of life to the transcendental Beyond.
