“CERTAINTIES!” 

❤ 🙂

“CERTAINTIES!” a poem. a.k.a.: “Cause & Effect! Always On The Go!” Sunday: September 9, 2018 [SURE! Let’s-be-the-best-guessers, the-best-guessers that we can – BUT! Let’s-not THEN (pause) convince-ourselves (pause) (that)- we-can-guess-some Master Plan!!]

Cause & Effect! Cause & Effect!

CAUSE-&-EFFECT-CAN-MAKE-YOU-A-WRECK:

We-get salmonella from-a China man’s poop;

There’s Avian Flu, ‘cause-o’-birds in a coop!

Legionnaire’s Disease? It’s from air in a vent!

IF you’re frightfully depressed – it’s-just-what-grama-sent!

{WHEW!}

IF X yields Y,

Then WHY? I ask, “Why!”

Does IT-NOT-always-work?

Well, let’s ask Cpt. Kirk,

“Whose emotions are WILD,” says-Dr.-Spock, on The Bridge!

Causal Effect? We’re not sure, or-(maybe )just-a-smidge!

Point is, it’s percentages (pause) that we’re (re)’lying on,

We think 50% – or – 51 – has some brawn –

And can-allow-us to ASSUME – all-sorts-o’-poop-in-the-room!

Cause & Effect! I’m-gonna-get-me A BROOM!

Now, Quantum Mechanics is (also) still hanging around,

Suggesting – we can think – and can alter what’s bound.,

To happen – OR NOT – WHEN WE’RE SIMPLY NOT SURE!

We like to speculate – SPECULATIONS ARE THE CURE –

And, with limited testing, Big Pharma’s OK,

With making conjectures, about-their-drugs-every-day!

We’re so busy – being frightened – and watching TV,

That we’ll buy ALMOST ANYTHING – when THE experts agree,

Like: Bipolar disorder can never be cured?

[IT-MUST-be-in-the-genes] SO, good drugs have insured,

To convince us that medicine’s SO SACROSANCT:

I THINK THAT A MONKEY – OUR CHAINS HE HAS YANKED!

Cause and effect!? Is it X yields Y?

Or – could-Y yield X – We don’t know, so (we) cry,

OUT-in-anguish IF (pause) “firm-ist conclusions are far,

CONCLUSIONS! Based-on Insufficient-”evidence?!”* Har-har!

(We’re) FAR, FAR AWAY,

But we-want something to say –

THAT’S CONCLUSIVE TODAY –

Like RELIGIONS’ Creed’s Sway:

CAUSE AND EFFECT!

Praise Great-God, you elect!

Go to church pretty often,

And-then-from-your-coffin,

You’ll rise to the heights;

FORGET WRONGS & RIGHTS:

Have FAITH! IT’LL-BE SO,**

CAUSE AND EFFECT:

ON “THE GO!!”

fin. ❤

* – Is there ANY evidence(?) out there – for ANYTHING!?

** – Amen = Let it be so?
