Descartes The Monster - Poem by O Anna Niemus

How many know of
Rene 'I think therefore I am'
that he nailed dogs' paws
to his vivisection carts

Descartes: the sentence associated
with your name should be
'I crucify.. therefore I am a monster'

Descartes stole his wife's dog for vivisection as well

Leonardo Da Vinci: One day the world will look on research on animals
as it now regards research on human beings

    Of course you know that Descartes was famous for saying:
    I think, therefore I am.
    Well, did you ever hear how Descartes met his end?
    A friend of his came up to him one day and asked,
    Say, Old Chap, do you think I'm good looking?
    Descartes replied: I think not.
    and POOF! he disappeared just like that!
