Triskellion
Middling Addition


Ad Libitum


I answered every question then . . .
They said ,  “ It isn ' t fair !
Your answer ' s from the middle
Which really isn ' t there ! ”

I said that every question asked
Was posed from underground
Or above the sky so high  --
Which answers can ' t be found .

They said ,  “ The links are obvious ( ? ) ”
I said ,  “ Why the questions then ?
If your absolute is certain ,
Why not write it with a pen ? ”

They said ,  “ . . . that all the joining ( ! )
When everything was new ,
Was done by something certain
' Who '  joined it with some glue ! ”

I postulated chickens  --
That a chicken was the egg ( ! )
They muddled with their answer ,
“ What came first we beg ? ” !!!!

I argued for infinity
Saying only moment can give time .
They said ,  “ We dare you prove it !
And your answer is but rhyme ! ”

They stuck , “ That glue was made at first
--  Before all other things ! “
They said it with a screaming voice ,
“ That reason . . .  it just sings ! ”

I was not the least perturbed
By the screaming voices there  --
Or the nasty arguments
That I really wasn ' t fair .

In answer to their ' first made glue '
Before all other things ( ! )
I said that moment is the stuff
That makes the true bell ring !

They said , "That two and two make four
Every time you add ! ”
I said that such a limit will
Drive a person mad !

I posed the thought of synergy
An idea made to mix .
They said ,  “ That ' s pretty fishy
Because no mind can get a fix ! ”

I said that two and two might add
To three, or five, or more . . .
They didn ' t take this very well
And some left by the door !

“ If two and two does not make four , “
The rest said it very plain ,
“ If two and two does not make four , “
They shouted twice with pain .

Then nothing can be certain said  --
Thought ... a needle in some hay ?
Then nothing can be certain . . .  Why ,
You can make up what you say . . . . . . . “
