    Neither Columbus Nor Magellan

    I am stretched
    On the table
    And I am dislocated
    And dissected
    Into roadways and waterways
    My blood is a pigeon of peace flying from east to west
    And finding no airport where to land and be cuddled
    I am not Columbus
    Which might be fortunate as Columbus turned to be a cruel man
    But still I am not a Columbus or a Magellan as
    These were all discoverers going into the wild unknown.
    I never entered the unknown
    I never entered anything
    And I waited by the entrance waiting for the door to open
    As to have a glimpse of what is going on inside.
    So I was travelling sitting by the front door
    On the outside where no family cooks a cake of chocolates for me.

    Wow, that is a great poem, jurisprudent! Really enjoyed it.
