Newton's Diagram

AP Calculus exam                                                                     

quiet musings on

a bleak November day

The wind roars and whistles along

 rattling the windows

Outside each leaf joining another

swirling around 

to form a small cyclone

just outside the window

"Let's open the window and catch leaves!" he exclaims.

Compete innocence.

Later, sirens roar

as dark death descends to claim its victims.                       

It swoops down to collect its due

. . . a stadium

. . . a restaurant

. . . a theatre

Perpetrated by evil

wrapped in a false cloak of faith

Allah Akbar!

Where is the innocence?

La vie en rose?
