I Cannot Change Human Nature (Watchmen 2009)

30 Jun


1.
My father was a watchmaker.
He abandoned it when
Einstein discovered time is relative.
I would only agree that
A symbolic clock is as nourishing to the intellect
As a photograph of oxygen to a drowning man.

2.
Perhaps the world is not made.
Perhaps nothing is made.

3.
Even if I wanted to help,
my future is blocked.

4.
Im tired of earth,
These people
Im tired of being caught,
In the tangle of their  lives.

5.
But you, Adrian…are just a man.
The world’s smartest man poses no greater threat to me
than does its smartest termite

6.
Why would I save a world I no longer have any stake in?

7.
I can change almost anything…
But…I can’t change human nature.
