Dis was a harsh, inhospitable, dangerous place and the Magter made it worse. They might have been human once -- but they were something else now. The Magter had only one desire -- to kill everything, themselves, their planet, the universe if they could.

Brion Brandd was sent in at the eleventh hour. His mission was to save Dis, but it looked as though he was going to preside over its annihilation.

A man said to the universe:

A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

Stephen Crane

A man went before a strange God

A man went before a strange God
The God of many men, sadly wise.
And the deity thundered loudly,
Fat with rage, and puffing.
"Kneel, mortal, and cringe
And grovel and do homage
To My Particularly Sublime Majesty."

The man fled.

Then the man went to another God
The God of his inner thoughts.
And this one looked at him
With soft eyes
Lit with infinite comprehension,
And said, "My poor child!"

Stephen Crane

Charity thou art a lie

Charity thou art a lie,
A toy of women,
A pleasure of certain men.
In the presence of justice,
Lo, the walls of the temple
Are visible
Through thy form of sudden shadows.

"Behold, the grave of a wicked man"
By Stephen Crane

Behold, the grave of a wicked man,
And near it, a stern spirit.
There came a drooping maid with violets,
But the spirit grasped her arm.
“No flowers for him,” he said.
The maid wept:
“Ah, I loved him.”
But the spirit, grim and frowning:
“No flowers for him.”

Now, this is it —
If the spirit was just,
Why did the maid weep?

...my version the what i can say today to the "UNIVERSE"...!

Me & The Universe

I looked at the starry night,
not really knowing what I was seeing!
Are those stars near or far?
And how far?

"Many light years" away, we have all been taught!
And is one of the big mysteries of light travel!
"A few billion light years" is the size of the Universe,
we have also been told!

"Have we come from the atoms of this Universe?
And then become of any living reason?"
"It would not seem so, my dear", answered her
Majesty the Universe! "A mother is richer than me!"

Why would I even know anything about "riches";
When my mother is "richer" than the Universe?
Because the "poor without a mother" are not
"rich" as they claim to be!

Stephen Crane's no obligation enigma in his poem, 
makes me cry in bewilderment: "of what obligation
could be more real...!" than that of a Mother to her
child? She is the child's Universe, Goddess and Love! 

George F. Thomson B.
