Confirmation (Limerick) - Poem by Kelly Kurt

A common theme in superstition
Is an admission of contrition
I believed what was told
‘Cause the story was old
And didn't demand definition

    That's merely an old wife's tale.
    To admit your mistakes is to fail.
    I proudly exclaim
    I'm never to blame!

    Limericks (I'm told) should be bawdy and or humorous, but I like to use them philosophically as well

    Unfortunatelly, dear Kelly, superstitions are so widely accepted that we have to admitt the human thought does not work under the principle of determinism.That is why I do, personaly, insist on the need to teach in our schools the atheistic theories of ancient greek sophist of the fifth centure b.d.on which democracy based itself.A great philosophical conception in poetical form.Proud to see it typed by your plectrum.
