The time has come



The time has come 

The wallers said

To talk of different states,  

Of shale and schist, and surface cracks

And amethyst and slates

And why debris forms mountain scree

And why the earth has plates.

They spoke of sub-atomic mass

Of particles and strings,

Of quantum leaps and isotopes

And earth's magnetic rings.

And after that they took some stones 

And built some arty things .
