I have my own bandwagon? Haha... awesome!!
Well, Sharon, I gotta say this is one of the best I've read from you. I love that kind of inspiration--learning something new and fascinating about the natural world and using it to parallel some human thought or experience, as you've done. It's a great way to get the muse in gear... isn't it?
I disagree with the message of your poem, however... truth isn't something that should be wielded as a weapon, because the very nature of truth itself is volatile and unstable, and not to be trusted as a "weapon." It could very well turn out to be your opponent's weapon after all. There should be no battle, only co-operation with a common goal in mind. Truth is a goal, not a means...
Just my humble opinion though... nonetheless, awesome poetry PdV... I very much enjoyed.
