He who invented
the law of gravity
had not been blessed
with pull
from the top
The apple imbalanced
with the weight
of tyrannical branches
and unthinking leaves
they swayed in obedience
to the branch
which in turn
followed the wind
The trunk acknowledged
the wisdom of the roots,
but paid obeisance
to the prevailing wind
in a false hope
of taking flight
The apple decided to split
from the branch
and take a different path
Anti-gravitational was the mind
