mona lisas smile
aint exactly what it seems
but some of us do know
just what it is that means
the fundamental contradiction
of what is and what is not
dont help to explain
why its worth such a bleedin lot
from the scientists dilema
of what to learn and what to know
how to design and reinvent
the things we cant yet show
or heal the conflict that exists
between two selves within one whole
the enigma that arises
when we place perhaps by stealth
a portrait from our minds
of some secret inner self
