Shackled In Absolutes - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Minds shackled in absolutes
Absolutely cause distress
When dogmatically resolute
And shackled to excess

Viewing the world in extremes
Logically de-railing
Structures irrational schemes
Illogically assailing

Reasoning dogmatically
Is patently unfeasible
Reasoning fanatically
Is patently unreasonable

    Phew! Stanley, this is a real mind bender. What a super use of words, I had to take it real slow, but it was worth it. Love Ernestine XXX (Report) Reply
