Mindless Muse

Here's a 'poem' I wrote when I was but a freshman at Baylor:

The Philosopher

"I think therefore I am," quoth he to me.
Said I, "What happens if your mind goes blank?
And quoting others takes no thought, I think.
To put another's words in verse is worse
than staying silent, or so I believe . . .

There were a few more such banal verses that followed, but those have, thankfully, disappeared down the memory hole . . .
