Heart And Reason

Rationality is not all its cracked up to be but it means a lot to me.

There is reason in my rhyme all the time.

Art comes from feeling in a room beneath the ceiling.

At other times below the sky.

It pays to wonder why.

The more you depend on yourself the less you depend on anyone else.

Einstein looked into his heart, he said where do I start?

I love heart and brain as one beneath the Sun.

At 78 have I begun?

I am my mother’s oldest son.

There was one before, he is no more.

I have seen the sea and shore.

I sailed, I flew.

Did you?

Walked and talked too.

Enjoyed the view.

I live in Ireland below the 55th parallel.

My choice of Hell.

Where I was born, I believe in the world although I have not seen it.

You name it, I have been it.

The Earth and the world are not the same thing, it pays to use distinction.

People make the world and may lead us to extinction.

The world has borders, Earth has none.

Madness and love exist beneath the Sun.

What is the square root of one?

Its one you fool, did you not hear that at school?

Perhaps you did not listen many don’t I do.

Here’s looking at you.

Welcome to the Milky Way.

I’ve had my say.

For today.

What is the reason for this rhyme?

I wrote it because I had the time.

If you wish, analyse.

I don’t tell lies.

What’s good about goodbyes?

We coexist in time.

End of rhyme.

This is rather long and people don’t like that.

I had a dog and cat.

That’s that.

I just read this to my brother, he called it the meanderings of a madman, a happy madman.

I do what I can.

To make it clear, reason is not everything.

Heart is king.

How can I explain it to you, one and one is two.

Its as easy as ABC, or so it seems to me.

Later I will move on to the law of gravity.

Black holes are for a later class, I hope you pass.

Time is an illusion but be in time for school.

Einstein was no fool.

For your homework study quantum theory.

Tomorrow explain it to me.

Now put your books away and go out to play.

The future hasn’t happened yet, its coming soon, you bet.

When its here will you say this is it?

It’s a moving target, I quit.

The past is a thing of the past at last.

Let me know when it arrives, like a cat I have nine lives.

Look forward to the future, what else can you do?

I present the present to you.

Enough of time, enough confusion.

Einstein said time is an illusion.

Do you not want anyone to know you wear a wig, I do, I twig.

Why are you over sensitive about your sensitivity?

Einstein said its all about relativity.

I met at least two who wore wigs, possibly more, I mean men, not women, who would mind them?

One man was very fussy, so was the other now that I think.

In those days I took a drink.

I still do, do you?

One man wore a wig although the day before he was bald.

Mr. Green he was called.

Other people thought it funny but they were polite.

I am ninety per cent sane I told a friend he asked are you sure?

About my madness, is there a cure?

One thing, I don’t like being told what to think.

That drives a sober man to drink.

If I agree with you, that’s fine, if you make sense.

Pardon me, which of us are dense?

Einstein, come off the fence.

Serial killers have to start somewhere, that’s a joke.

Not if you’re the victim, sorry I spoke.

Don’t blame me, its my upbringing.

You should hear me singing.

Hopeless Case

Am I a hopeless case?

I have a distinguished face.

So I have been told, I am old.

Its all relative, ask Einstein.

Or a friend of mine.

The dinosaurs had distinction, then faced extinction.

Fossils remain, know your archeology, rheumatism gives me pain.

Regarding my hopelessness or other, ask my brother.

I make new friends, they know I exist.

Can I add you to the list?
