Civilization: Poetry and Technique
July 13, 2016


MacBeth is a part of human progress,
Just like internal combustion engine.
For these two things toward the future press --
Brought into being by our living djinn --
Technology on right! poetry left!
Here's Isaac Newton; there's G.G. Byron.
Civilization sans either bereft
Of music and meaning that fill our lungs.

Poetry, like technology, should grow.
When we stagnate in our ancestral poems
That culture is missing we only show.
We can live the classics, tome upon tome,
But until we capture technology,
The poetry lacks relevance to now.
Thales, architect, built philosophy.
He took poetic form: asked "what?" and "how?"

What should we take from religious answers?
Is it inventive? Is it poetic?
I say 'tis the depth of stagnant waters.
A soul dies in breathing into it music.
These songs are our ancient ancestral hymns,
Written unaffected by modern age
Why don't we wisely change our paradigms?
The classics are good, but should give the stage.

What kinds of things can be called poetic?
To this, we merely look to those we praise.
Cast-off: a famous drummer's broken stick.
A programmer's work in solving a maze.
Firefighters, police, ambulance drivers
Who work daily with the skills of a poet
Trained in techniques to be first responders.
Love songs, love the future, love the present.
