Occam’s Razor~by Paul F. Lenzi



Occam’s Razor


“Occam’s Razor” by H. Whitver

we like simple things
simple rationale for war
simpler yet for peace

reductionist thought
shaves away all the puzzling
hard metaphysics

but problems arise
when the simplest formulas
turn out to be wrong

“no” is so easy
while “yes” affirms commitment
entailing some work

beware the straight line
without testing his razor
may lead you to doom
