Cations

On a small stage
the scientist
pats the atom
and confers
him the title
positive cation
for loosing
an electron.

On a bigger stage
the society
praises those
who loose
a part or whole
of themselves;
Martyr, Altruist,
Vallal, Sanyasin:
words of
highest degree.

What's/How's it
positive
on/after loosing?
a child reading
Morals
wonders.

Only the
mother
weeping at her
soldier son's
grave
understands.

Meanwhile
the cation,
when the scientist
turns away,
in its quickest time,
grabs
his nearest
free electron
and shuns
away its
positivity.
