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 . . . . . . . “
