Chopping the Philosophy of Sheep

  • A A A
  • A stack of creative
    concepts tainted
    with ideals of fame
    is calling my name.

    Just give it a
    common
    denominator:
    chop, chop
    monism,
    chop, chop
    solipsism,
    chop, chop
    realism,
    chop, chop,
    structuralism,
    chop, chop,
    post…
    chop, chop,
    chop reality
    into syllables
    because
    big ones
    don’t bring
    fundamental
    change.

    Your originality
    is a waste of time
    they say;
    it has already
    been described.

    Foolish hat,
    they say,
    you’ll never
    win a game
    that is defined
    by tradition.

    You
    are trapped
    by everything
    you say
    [create]
    because
    although you
    chop, chop,
    chop reality;
    everything
    has already
    been baked,
    they say.

    Enjoy the game
    before it bakes
    you sterile!

    Your thoughts
    will be judged
    as scientific terms
    in the philosophy
    of the sheep.

    Are you
    asleep?

    They play
    the game of
    eloquence
    trying to spot
    the perfect
    combination
    of knowledge.

    As if life
    was a safe
    with a simple
    combination
    of faith.

    Such a
    childish play!

    A bait that is
    almost impossible
    to ignore if your ego
    is as big as their
    baseball bats;
    thinkers
    hitting hard
    their predecessors
    with the hope
    of being
    more renowned
    than the older.

    Such an
    impossible game!

    Want to find
    the truth?

    Chop, chop,
    chop tradition,
    and if you
    hate change…

    Let your past
    be your destiny.

    Read your history,
    bake your cake,
    make your recipe
    with true joy.

    But as I let you enjoy,
    let me chop, chop, chop
    without labeling my thought
    because once you think
    you’ve got me,
    read again,
    you’ll always find that
    chop, chop, chop
    is nothing but…
