Ziva learnt a new term today :
“An alternate universe”
She asks if there is
actually a place,
where an apple fell on Newton and he ate it instead?
Then maybe, the Grimm Brothers wrote about him
“Newton and the three Dwarfs” she giggles.
A world where four year-old Adolf
drowns in Passau, Germany
And Hitler could never tilt the swastika
Maybe in a parallel world,
A Scottish immigrant can enjoy a ride on a unicorn,
A world where her friends from America
would not mock her colour but find fault with their own countryʼs gun laws.
How with a shift in electronʼs velocity
and little changes in the
neuronʼs wiring, we could be in utopia?
Where rainbow dreams will not be in closets
Where all play and little work, does not make Jack fail mathematics
And algebra finally moves on from its X
“it sure exists; it now makes sense”
Santa is behind bars,
because of his habit of breaking in at midnight “That is why, Christmas is so late.
Santa is completing his sentence in jail” she
She is sure that somewhere Stephen King is writing cliched romance
And the current generation is bonding over hatred on millennial slangs.
Harry Potter was just a schizophrenic kid
(oh but that would ruin too many childhoods)
So, if your sky is cloudy today,
then do not worry because in an
alternative universe, the moon only rises to shine upon you.
That night Ziva snuggled her little tattered unicorn (with an injured horn),
a little too tightly and dreamt of the paradise she talked about.
I know this for sure, because she wrote a letter to Santa about non-aggravated robbery laws. you ask me if I believe in this
concept of a parallel universe?
then let me tell you this,
That letter was delivered very soon
And oh, Christmas is going to be in June!
