Noise and Stench

“What is that noise, that stench?  Is that a fart?

Who on earth could have flatulence so gross?”

“Sir, that’s Mark Shea pretending to be smart.

Of obfuscation, he has made an art—

Or so he thinks, supremely adipose.”

“What is that noise, that stench?  Is that a fart?”

“The horse that he has placed behind the cart

Is elephantine.  Here’s another dose,

Sir!  That’s Mark Shea pretending to be smart!

The whole is truly smaller than the part

When judged by neurons so damn otiose.”

“What is that noise, that stench?  Is that a fart?

It nails the nostrils, and it hurts the heart!

What soul can bear to have such smells so close?”

“Sir:  that’s Mark Shea pretending to be smart.

Don’t strive to understand.  Don’t even start.

.Ο λόγος του δεν ειναι λογικός”

“What is that noise, that stench?  Is that a fart?”

“Sir… that’s Mark Shea pretending to be smart.”
