Cogito Ergo Sum


Descartes was a clever man
He said “I think therefore I am”
But what, I ask you, does it mean?
And from it, what can I glean?

Cast your mind for the solution
Tis’ the pinnacle of evolution
The universes greatest power
And evolutions finest hour

Without a mind what would I be?
I would know not of reality
Without a mind how would I feel?
Without a mind would I be real?

What would I do without a mind?
I could not seek nor could I find
No questions nor ability
To understand natures philosophy

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
