Treasure Island

Paul Hartal


Ontological Verse


Reality is just a word
A word is reality in the world.
Purled, hurled, coiled and curled
The fabric of reality is impearled.

And is, is also a real word
Present indicative in the world.
The present is present in the world
It is indeed a genuine word.

Indicating a verbal mood unfurled
The indicative pertains to denoted act
Designates at present an objective fact.

For reality at present is just a word
Dancing freely in the world.
Oh, the present is just a word
Falling freely hurled and purled.

A word is reality in the world
And is, is also a real word.
The indicative pertains to denoted act
Designates in time an objective fact.

The present is present in the world
It is indeed a real word.
Oh, a word is reality in the world
Purled, coiled, curled, impearled.

The fabric of reality is hurled
And is, is also a real word
Present indicative in the world.

But let me thank you for your time
And end this verse with a real rhyme.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
