Diogenes-Or-He Realized There's No Honest Men - Poem by Glenn Bagshaw

His beacon searched for honest men
and found his own pure hell.
Thieves lit out with his only lamp.
Enlightment seems well.
when in darkness mind can brighten camp-.
and damn that Duracell.



DIOGENES

For the honest, with a lamp he went seekin'.
No one's honest! They swiped his beacon!

or:

HEGEL

The 'Phenomenology' is fearsome and long.
He thought none would ' Mind'. Again he was wrong!


THomas Hobbes

Tom Hobbes saw raw nature as brutual and awful.
On DVDs the same is praised and claimed lawful.
