In order to smother my curiosity,
I astounded, confounded, all posterity;
In my work that does serve as the cornerstone
Of Renaissance, of chevisance, and stands as alone.
I have painted and acquainted
Pope and King and those who painted;
Not only that, my beret hat
Spins out robots with armour clad.
Physiology, and Botany,
Chemistry, and Philosophy,
Physics, and on Mathematics,
Architecture, and Acoustics -
I have studied all that and more,
If I list, you will be bore'.
I have been in France and in Rome,
I have drawn bridges as well as domes,
I studied blood 'fore had Harvey,
I said, "Il sole muove no si",
I studied friction as well as light,
I studied where from stems our sight,
I studied cross-sections of the trees,
I invented machines that measure breeze,
I invented fridges that could cool -
I couldn't publish them because of fools
Who would have been behind me if I did,
For hundreds of years, thus, it was buried.
To quench and to drench my thirst for knowledge,
I broke and revoked the superfluous cage
That restricted artists and the painters,
And the poets as well as the inventors.
I have always set a precedent
Of an unchallenged and unbent
Spirit of Reasoning
And of seasoning
My senses and my skills
No matter what's the bills -
I will strive till it kills
And I can't hold a quill.
I quitted love when I realized
Our society's been baptized
To not allow love for all -
That's when I quit my call.
Though I know not why I think
Or why I speak or why I blink
It does not matter in the end.
For, every life is always spent.
But does it matter if it doesn't?
Why care about that never wasn't?
I live today and I shall die
And I do not need to justify
My vocation and my thirst
For knowledge - for which I durst
And dedicated life mine -
My sole love, let it be thine.
