Tumbling down

And yet it moves
I mumbled
But oh god
my dear

oh god

Truth tumbles.

It tumbles all over
their ill-conceived
assumptions
and better protected
presumptions

Just wait my dear,
where truth tumbles

knowledge follows.


Note: Galileo Galilei was condemned by the religious authorities to a public abjuration of his scientific discoveries. It is believed that, at the end of this public admission of guilt, Galileo muttered 'and yet it moves', referring to movement of the Earth in relation to the Sun - movement that Galileo had proven with his observations of Venus.
