Still binge reading Bertrand Russell
Still binge reading Bertrand Russell...
I plunge further into
erudite epistemological philosophication
courtesy said renown British polymath,
philosopher, logician, mathematician,
historian, writer, social critic,
political activist, and Nobel laureate.
Whew! His treatise
A History of Western Philosophy Quite profound
grist for intellectual mill
yours truly, a johnny come lately
doth thirstily swill.
Though challenging material
to comprehend without shadow of doubt,
urs truly disciplines himself
to utter words out loud
in an effort accentuate, enunciate, inculcate...
No matter said storied author
among grateful dead fifty plus years,
I experience communion
integrating esprit de corps
one garden variety
beetle browed foo fighter
linkedin courtesy immortality of soul.
Slow & methodical thru trenchant material I wade
steeping urs truly signature writing stock in trade
while sprawled out on bed housed within
1 bedroom apartment B44
Highland Manor Apartments
(situated in Schwenksville, Pennsylvania
owned by Grosse and Quade,
one of the largest residential
property management firms in this area.
Analogous to basking robin luxuriating
within his/her medium of taster's choice,
I experience with exultant and exuberant
express within poetic quasi-motto rejoice.
Book learning brings me tremendous delight,
whereby my mind soars to immense height
despite eyes forced to shut courtesy blinding light,
nevertheless joie de vivre prevails gleaning
precious nuggets of knowledge to ease
penurious and precarious penniless plight
prompting provocative dreams tonight.
Figurative meaty tender vittle morsels
temporarily appease appetite
dentures no drawback into juicy tidbits to bite
impossible mission countless passages to cite
each page chock full
food for thought delight
either factual or fictitious
voluminous tome doth excite
buzzfeeding Dharma bums' fanciful flight
occasionally curiosity finds him
scrutinizing mind boggling gametophyte
phase regarding plants,
(the dominant form in bryophytes -
mosses and liverworts -
reproduce by means of spores
released from capsules),
less familiar to most people, I highlight
smattering botanical information insight
nsync with tidbit
about mineralogy namely jacobsite,
a black magnetic
isometric mineral MnFe2O4.
Fifty plus shades of gray matter
undergoing voluntary torturous subjection
i.e. stoking, perusing, & manhandling
a heavy (Sisyphean) subject matter
(honest to dogs' truth),
I Kant understand a single word!
