Clarity Begins at Home

Eurasia is an island of such grand impressive size
we say it’s not an island. But it is.
If you’re not there, and want to be,
somewhere you have to cross some sea
so QED the OED decrees Eurasia too must be
as insular as Maui, Crete, and Capri
unless we trash consistency
and rule exceptions set us free
of meaning anything when we
presume to name what we discern
and what we don’t. We never learn.

One thought on “Clarity Begins at Home

  1. that’s got a rollicking rhythm!
    first I read:
    “presume to name what we discern
    and say we don’t. […]”
    also cute
    :)
