I’ve really enjoyed this, and I hope you have too
Good philosophers must be friends you see, as they love the same things in their heart.
Overcome by amazement and curiosity, it’s hard to know just where to start.
They want to know how, and what and why on the most general possible scale.
But any answer they hear, they’re likely to sneer, and try really hard to derail.
You have to be careful from what thoughts you begin, as they often show where you’ll end up.
Whether you point up or down, make sure your argument’s sound, and don’t mix your word meanings up.
Start from what’s obviously true, like one plus one equals two, then go where no one can follow.
If you need turtles big and round, all the way down, your ideas will sound bloated and hollow.
Epicycle on epicycle, please don’t act all like you’ll, never say anything ad hoc.
Try as you might, if you just want to sound right, do us a favor—just stop!
Now not just any thinkers become friends, but good thinkers make amends, when they acknowledge mutually.
That this world is a puzzle, it will bamboozle and fuzzle, with confounding absurdity.
Your assumptions and mine, happens all the time, lack internal consistency.
But…I’ve really enjoyed this, and I hope you have too, maybe on that at least we agree.
Are we angels or apes, oh…let’s decide later…
But whichever, I’m glad you’re one with me.
