Credo quia absurdum

I believe because it’s absurd.
I have this thing. I hold it here
In my hand like a live bird.
I breathe it in like clean air.

Please don’t tell me how to live.
I give thanks because I’m new.
The song my heart sings, I believe.
Even if it’s false—it’s true!

  1. not your best effort but a tricky subject … i’d like to see more, i think that worrying about rhyme kind of killed it.
    but hey, i am an idiot when it comes to poetry, my criticism shouldn’t count for much.

    my strentgh is brute logic, in any debate with you i will win all the battles but gladly lose the war.
    the world would suck if the absurd did not carry the day.
    and a good choice of graphics, again.

    (think of replacing Even if it’s false—it’s true! with something that aims for the same mark but sounds less, ahem, wieselian, not an ode to lying in order to achieve some sordid end, you don’t need tarring with that brush)

    1. “my strentgh is brute logic, in any debate with you i will win all the battles but gladly lose the war.”

      If you win all the battles, you can’t lose the war. This is illogical. Ergo, your strength can’t be brute logic. 🙂

      Touché!

      1. totally agree, and in fact it is my point.

        i want you to win the war 🙂 because although just because i am good at logical, organized thought doesn’t mean i value it above all else.

      2. Are we talking about field battles? What about supply and munitions? You can’t win every battle but surrender due to sheer exhaustion? Vietnam?
