The Insanity Of Reality's Redundancy

The Insanity Of Reality's Redundancy

A Poem by Marvin Thomas Cox-Flynn de Graham
"

How important are we, beyond our own self assessed rating of self importance? I believe in the importance of Human individuality, but not of Man's overall Significance to a Universe of Existence.

Oh why, ask I, am I here, what is the plan,

in stirring ones thoughts to contemplating,

the reality of our individual significance?


Our pompously over rated human significance

is of itself, all together, highly insignificant,

is, in fact, significantly insignificant,

in asserting anything consequential,

other than our insignificant existence,

which is, also, significantly insignificant,

-- significantly speaking, that is …


No matter how complicated or fancy,

we might wish to paint it, in spewing out,

sermons of religiously maniacal jargon,

or technologically philosophical orations,

to the common man, born to eat, and die,

we ain't diddly in context of relationship,

to the universe we are but a speck within

and the sifting sands of time immemorial --

relegated to a macrocosm of nonexistence,

as though we, in fact, had never existed ...


There is truly nothing new under the sun1,

nothing of any merit, meaning, or purpose,

for what is today, shall not be tomorrow,

in becoming today in mindless repetition,

until that day, tomorrow, never comes ...

1Ecc 1:9 KJV�"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
