This work has reached the exceptional level
A very unsettling time in history, Galileo not listened to

A chapter in the book Poetry

A martyr for science

by Jackarrie

Galileo Galili how did they not see?
how valuable your work was going to be
you tried to enlighten, but it was in vain
truth was held back, by the religious reign
your genius punished, for an astute contribution
sharing this knowledge would reach the solution
Aristotle's view was wrong, his world was geocentric
Galileo had the truth, no doubts it was heliocentric
a martyr for science, struck down by religious bigotry
because he tried to educate them on astrometry



Galileo began to express openly his support of the Copernican theory that the earth and planets revolved around the sun. This challenged the doctrine of Aristotle and the established order set by the Catholic Church.
