James Hart (21.06.53 / Grappenhall, Cheshire)
Is this the best of all possible worlds?
Is this the best that God can do?
Is this the limit of his omnipotence?
Are we then limited by a limited God?
Or is this not rather the limit of my knowledge?
Am I a midge trying to grasp an elephant,
An elephant trying to grasp a jumbo jet
A jumbo jet trying to reach the seventh dimension?
Is this the end of my poem then?
Is everything else pure futile noise?
Am I wasting my time like good old Pangloss?
Throwing words onto a paper in vain?
