Philosophy 101

Scrambled Logic

I can no more fathom
necessity and sufficiency
than pluck a shell
shard suspended
in glaire free
from a blue enamel bowl
thumb and index finger
blunt and bumbling
mucking blindly
about objects
of scorn ladled on
in heaps by a very tetchy yolk
aloof and afloat
encapsulating rather neatly
that eternal 
barnyard stumper
which came first
the chicken 
or the egg.
