“CERTAINTIES!” 

<3 🙂

“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. <3

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

** – Amen = Let it be so?

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
