To Brink and Kishan
In this paradoxical world that is at once both good and bad,
Some men usefully help others while thereís always a nasty cad,
Too, that seeks his own interests and victimizes his fellows.
Itís only for the likes of you the world still lives and men are glad.
No matter what we believe in, God or idols, body or soul,
What helps now and will redeem us in the future, I have to add,
Is computer and programmingónot preaching and good intention
Although they are good by themselves and of both of which we have had
A lot for hundred thousand years. But as the grains of wheat we take
And leave the chaff to animals, science, too, creates an ironclad
While it still provides us with ships that aid us in the ways we know.
Itís a helpful knife in kitchens, a harming one used by the mad.
We, poor preys in the noose of life, can be freed only by a dad
Like you, Brink, and Kishan, the nice, brainy, gentle, cultured, good lad.
