“Absurdity comes with the territory,
and what we need is the will to put up with it.”
(Nagel, T., The View From Nowhere; (Oxford University Press Inc., 1986))
“He’s a dork.
Folk flock from miles around just to gawk.
They think it’s a quirk,
a bit of a lark.
A load of old bollocks is nearer the mark.
He might as well bark
at the moon –
that feckin’ stone’s no sooner up
than it’s rolling back
all the way down.”
