The Philosophers Groan

Think About It by Phil Burns

Think About It by Phil Burns

 AnElephantCant spell philosophy
But he carefully studies philosophers
He wants to learn more
But they make his brain sore
It is more fun to head butt a rhinoceros

He thinks Jean-Paul Sartre is a talented guitarist
In a band called the Existentialists
Their music is fun
But when it is done
He wonders if they play it intentionally

Soren Kierkegaard is a stand up comedian
Who does near the knuckle jokes mocking religion
To show it is not a force
He likes to use metaphors
He is probably not funny if you are a Christian

Friedrich Nietzche is a rock and roll poet
Who makes you wish you had stayed in your bed
He has AnElephant squirming
He is so life affirming
But he keeps telling us he thinks God is dead

But don’t forget the olden days song and dance men
Socrates Plato and Aristotle like a good argument
AnElephant has a suggestion
Why not answer a question
On TV maybe Greece’s Got Talent

Confucius is the Dylan of Thinkers
AnElephant thinks his dude is quite underrated
He sees things so clearly
And says them sincerely
Life is simple why make it complicated

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    Confucius he say quite a number
    Of things that he’d never have said;
    He cannot correct each such blunder
    Because the poor fellow is dead.

    I do like your run-down on the philosophers. Most of them deserve being run down.

    AnElephant has named a few philosophers
    Some which I never even knew
    The way they say phrases
    From a myriad of places
    I think I would turn the air blue
