Alchemy | Poem



         a bomb was dropped 
and as it fell 
          it turned into a rock 
and as it fell further 
          it sprouted plants 
and as it fell further 
          the plants grew seeds 
and scattered them over the Earth 
          you see... 
yin/yang man was riding on top 
          and over his head 
he tried to balance peace 
          and we ALL know 
how hard that is! 
- Daniel Trilli, age 9
