Trivia Ad Nauseum

A Poem By Hannah D. // 1/22/2014

A priest, a king and a philosopher
Sat upon a hill
Contemplating how
They could possibly

"Have faith,"
Declared the priest,
Silent, still, without
Changing a single line drawn on his face; "If
You but believe, God is obliged to grant it."

"Fear not!"
Cried the king
With iron flames in his
Eyes, that betrayed an impudent
Brutality - "I'll call upon my people; they
Are timid, will obey, to save their lives."

Shouted the learned man,
And he reasoned much
Why they were most definitely
And with twice
As many words, and idioms, and
Latin (that his audience found useless)
He developed a grand theory he judged absolutely
True; and he took it, and he dove
To his death.


This was really interesting.

I enjoyed reading it. Keep posting :)

The best stories are those that are focused, unassuming, and self-confident enough to trust the reader to figure things out. --

Thank you both! : )

"Reason itself is a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all." - G. K. Chesterton
