Science Fact Science Fiction

If illness by Allah is science fact

then its cure is
science fiction by a mad

scientist we hope’s on the right track

his beakers abubble his machinery abuzz

the light in the air growing youthful
peach fuzz

a pasture of health in the distance
waiting for us

to arrive in one piece and
run on its grass

into the open space
of His Merciful Face
