“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!
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!
IF X yields Y,
Then WHY? I ask, “Why!”
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,
You’ll rise to the heights;
FORGET WRONGS & RIGHTS:
Have FAITH! IT’LL-BE SO,**
CAUSE AND EFFECT:
ON “THE GO!!”
* – Is there ANY evidence(?) out there – for ANYTHING!?
** – Amen = Let it be so?
