Someone once said that:
The definition of Insanity is
repeating the same mistakes -
over, and over, and over ...
CAN MAN CHANGE?
PERHAPS WHEN 'WE'
ARE DEAD AND GONE?
I CERTAINLY HOPE SO!

Someone much wiser than I once wrote:
“The Only Thing Permanent Is Change!”
May we analyze this somewhat rash statement?
It is ever-changing - every nanosecond that passes -
Is gone forever - it is never static!
“Time marches on!”
Billions and billions of innumerable stars -
Constantly expanding and contracting Novas -
Fleeting Comets - Mysterious Black Holes -
Mammoth Matter Moving Magically.
Recently, even Physicists have announced that -
Solid Matter isn’t really solid -
Vast voids contain the solid particles -
Electrons, Protons, Neutrons - all constantly moving -
Baryons, Mesons, Pions, Kaons - elementary particles - Colliding!
The ‘Big Blue Marble’ -
Rotating, Revolving, Orbiting the Sun -
Constant, yet ever-changing, ad infinitum.
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter -
Forever repeating their Changes -
Warmth, Torridness, Chill, Frigidness.
Wind, Rain, Hail, Sleet, Snow -
Storms, Tornados, Hurricanes, Tsunamis, Monsoons,
Droughts, Deluges, Destruction, Damage -
Mother Nature’s Constant Attempts to Purge!
Flowers, Plants, Trees, Grass, Crops, Herbs, Weeds -
Germinating, Growing, Blossoming, Waning, Dying -
A Beauteous Kaleidoscope of Unending Color!
Germs, Viruses, Insects, Birds, Reptiles, Fishes, Mammals -
All Growing, Breeding, Creating, Eating,
Living, Dying ... Repetitious Constant Change!
Feral Finite Man! The Master of the Earth!
Birthing, Living, Over-Populating, Dying -
Controlling, Polluting, Warring, Killing,
Murdering, Maiming, Endangering -
GOD SHEDS UNENDING TEARS!
All Permanently Changing!
A ‘Handful’ Learning -
A Multitude Wallowing in Stupidity!
INSANITY ... THY NAME IS ... MAN!
