In Praise of Idleness*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr


 

 

CXC ~> In Praise of Idleness*

CXC ~> In Praise of Idleness*
(1)
Consider this before you raise your hand
In full surrender, to admit defeat–
The universe being rational and
Knowable, yet in expanse, infinite,
Knowledge expands with no pre-set limit:
Except that which by concord we define,
To determine the which I may claim mine!
(2)
How many things you count beyond control?
I’d bet you reckon at least more than one.
Be it by principle or protocol,
You care that what’s important must be done
Else before you know, you yourself are gone:
Your brilliant notion of nothing to do
Betrays your ignorance of what you know!
(3)
Reflect therefore, wherefore you pick mores?
Or to what end your appetites constrained?
Far simpler to do however you please
Vouchsafe for keeps all that you had obtained;
Than suffer through your conscience be burdened:
Stay vigilant to reinforce your doubt
Else dwell malignant without clue or clout!
