Who would have thought

I’m finding Derrida de-structured And Levinas‘ face makes me smile Who would have conjectured That one day I’d lecture On thoughfulness and all its trials? I prefer Kierkegaard to Sartre Who sometimes makes me feel *****. Who would have expected That words would be texted As men smoked cigarettes and drank beer? Some people like reading Jane Austen While others juggle with Wittgenstein. Who would have discarded The notes in the margins? How sweetly these words recombine. Munch liked to paint people screaming his premonitions were extra strong Who else would have expected The human destruction Europe gave to the world before long?
