The Percussion Of Perfection -

There is a beat to the world,
it burns and bites, it can calm & comfort,
it will arouse and it will anger, it is a romantic rhythm,
immutable and immaculate,
an unselfish music it is, life provides this sensative song
and we all perfom a dance of danger, delight,& determination
as a humble gratuity for it's majesty,

how could any rational person contend that Nature is imperfect,
who dares accuse life of wrong doing,
how does such turgidity exist, minds on meger budget,
oh but they do, ugly creatures of hollow heads have argued so pompously
to indict the cosmos with error like how fowl beggars cavil 
about quality of charity,
huffing, moaning, and squirming in their rationalizations for feeling indignant about life
inglorious as dirt on silk,
wrangling like gluttonous mosquitoes, vile & clumsy,
if they were to admit life's absolute perfection
then more self accountability for actions need ensue,
how could they slander Deity without blame,

I spoke to a religious zealot, pious as pain to wounds,
he said, oh no, life, including human discretion cannot be perfect
for there is sin and gross debauchery,
I discussed the matter with a scientist, calculating as the I.R.S., he replied,
no no, you play semantic games, nature is immensely imperfect,
like the price of fame,
I politely requested an example of imperfection from him, he smugly said,
" genetic mutations ", what unabashed ego I thought,
his response seemed word game,
I debated a logician on the subject, thorough as an army ant this one was,
she remarked that the idea of imperfection
could cause imperfect reality,
I said, if anything occurs it must be, otherwise it would not happen,
imperfection is that which should not happen,
all that becomes real is present time impeacability -

    Thanks Linda - I'm only as clever as my ignorance allows me to be - I truly believe that Imperfection does not exist - its a personal philosophy that I embrace because I am currently unable to disprove it with logic or Faith - sometimes this belief, or precept of faith is difficult to adhere to because of all the misery in world, all the causalties of Life, but these tragedies do not make Life imperfect -

    This compliment is an honor Mystic Rose, and one that Providence will share in - my imagination and interpretation of experience seem natural & odd to me simultaneously - I like attempting to raise awareness about unique ways of understanding things - J.A.B. %

    Wow. This flows really well firstly. Secondly, I like how everyone argues about imperfection. If you ask me, theirs beauty in flaw.

    Yes Jay, the beauty of "Flaw" is that it possesses great potential for increased value - Flaws and follies manifest because they are reacting to the consequence of existense itself. It seems so very difficult for most people to consider honestly, that 'everything happens for a necessary reason', hence the product can not be imperfect or wrong - J.A.B. %
