CURIOUS ABNER’S CON

 

Curious Abner thought awhile,

(A while is all he had.)

The moment seemed to last forever,

(Forever’s not so bad.)

After all, thought Curio,

It only takes an instant

To contemplate creation,

How far is near or distant?

(To contemplate or “complicate”.)

He wondered with a grin

Content and yes, quite satisfied

With this intellectual spin.

While rolling in the aisle.

Curious Abner thought awhile.

(A while is all he had.)

( A while is not so bad.)

TO BE OR NOT TO BE: THAT IS THE QUESTION. HAMLET, PRINCE OF DENMARK, WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

I AM THAT I AM. YHWH. Exodus 3:12. KJV. I Yam what I Yam.   Popeye.

Great tau is beyond description.

Great argument uses no words.

Great integrity is not incorruptible.

Great goodness is not kind.

Great courage is not aggressive.

Tao that is manifest is not tao.

Words that argue miss the point.

Obvious integrity is not believed.

Perpetual kindness does not work.

These five are round and mellow.

Yet they may become square and inflexible.

Knowing enough to stop when one does not know is perfection.

Chuang Tsu 4th Century BC
