The Mousetrap Revisited

Entrapping the magic,
philosophers moan

Theory after theory,
no meat on the bone

They label and mark,
their didactics retooled

Force feeding their ramble
to dilettante-fools

And when in the end
they are then proven wrong

They slink back to their hollows,
where the vanquished now throng

But a new tier of ‘masters'
has taken their place

To lecture and spiel
—and pontificate

(Baldwin School: March,2021)
