I am an atom of carbon
And carbon is the key

I am the element of life
And you owe yours to me
I am the glue of the Universe
The fixative
Used by the Great Model-maker

I play a waiting game
Le low that’smy secret
Take a breath every millennium
But though set in my ways


Don’t be misled. I’m not inert
I will go down in cosmic history
As an adventurer
For when I do make a move
Things happen and fast

I am an atom of carbon
And carbon is the key
I am the element of life
And you owe yours to me

When the tune is called
I carry the message , To the piper
Take the lead
In the decorous dance
Of life and death

Patient, single-minded and stable
I keep my talents hidden
Bide my time , Until by Time am bidden.

    The Zen bits are astonishingly refreshing, Ajay dear.

    About the usefulness of science and technology, I have always wondered why has S&T failed to emulate Nature’s unbeatable paradox : you take a fluff of water in steam form, rub these molecules together using plain air as an aid, and voila, produce millions of volts with millions of Amps current, and splurge it all on a blind earth. What a colossal waste too… unless you can count the usefulness of the green cover we take for granted.
    Why can’t we replicate that simple technology?
    Cheerz from an idle thinker…
