I imagine van Gogh on his scooter today
Getting out of downtown traffic.
To the country he is rushing
To snap away for the National Geographic.


All those close-ups of sunflowers, insects and trees
With his camera he could have taken.
But a painter he was, so he painted instead.
And his artistry isn't forsaken.


Go to Ottawa soon; you will see for yourselves
Forty paintings that could have been photos.
As for those "painting" digital pictures these days,
Hope they learn from old frescoes in grottos.

Man City have won it!
This FC of mood swings,
Capricious strikers, and
Suffering fans.
From tears of sadness
To tears of glory
In only five minutes,
Like in a trance.


To make something happen
You VENI somewhere;
You VIDI 
To know if you are up to the test;
You VICI, just like Roberto Mancini.
Psychology matters.
Let's learn from the best!

Scientists stated today
They will check DNA
To agree whether Bigfoot exists
Yay or nay.


They will analyze blood.
They will sift through some hair.
They will look at some things
Someone chewed on somewhere.


But whatever they find
In that DNA,
Life will not be contained, and
Life will find the way.*
