Diogenes - Unknown Hand: http://www.zshare.net/audio/63…..20a80d5a9/


Humans will never know with great certainty the truth that lies outside of our visible realm. Duality, the separation of body and mind or soul, is a very Western concept, and it lends itself well to the idea of an afterlife, or even that our soul is reborn into some other form of life. A romantic notion, to be sure, but not entirely true in my knowledge. Although I do believe in a very physical sense that the matter which makes up our body goes on to become an infinte number of forms throughout the cycle of the universe, there is no soul that attaches to this. Once we die, our thoughts cease to exist, because everything that we consider our identity is merely a product of complex chemical reactions in a brain that is just as material as a bullet that penetrates it.

Some see it as a vice to
Splice duality of monotheism
Approach alter of its one God and
Drop vision like piano theory victims
Two staccato eerie gypsy debutantes
Dish the bipedal synopsis
Don't compliment me repeatedly, dearest
Humility is too often devoured by kind words
I'm still just a youngen and more
Confident in my foolishness than ever, [faith endeavors]
Planted catty-corner to Plutarch's mason brethren
So little time, so much to learn
And I have not an ounce to offer
Save my own confusion, life is a tease
Nature plays a cruel joke on us humans
But the punchline always puts one at ease, [that's for sure]
Data casper, magnificent closure of the growth spurt
It's the truth as I see it, though
Can't give you any more or any less
Qur'an or Torah, may thee blessed
Destitute and rich unite to fight the prejudice
Spite the expected destiny of techno cannibalistics
He's gone ballistic!
Span the lurid abyss with
Cannonball jinxed collagen tissues
Plastic surgeon, Dr. Dio slyly
Slipping a scalpel into wack verbiage
Mass tension frays my braided Icarus feathers
Donated a corporeal cage to cross and came back sicker than ever
See I strive for simplicity
But my love of language finds a dichotomy
In the bottom of the heap of filth I call revelation
Def poetesque postmodern prexy don lexicon
Box Tolstoy in the ring and help Hemmingway haymaker at daybreak, sir

The foyer is filled with measly idle baby steps
Creation is easy, I've got plans to destroy and rebuild
And I always retain the right to mind-changes
But these all-too-proper operettas spawn the same old phrases

Beast of burden, camel tongue
Bum the beach with a crease in the turban
Saddle up dead Arabian dromedary
Sonic dairy audiogram defecit with a
Comic book Doc Ock complex
Caught a Bach dirge outdated
Like lead and oakum
Lazy Antiphon of Constantinople
Linear orthodox response to the status quo
Cocky colorful connotation
Copy cudgel and clobber nations
Risk it, rise of the misfit rapper
Rigid intimate riddle mingling with
Ravenous idiomatic rhetoric mapper
Letterman jacket kinetics settled in
Static celibate scabbard, metal maverick Dio
Deburr degenerate drainpipe and bevel it backwards
It's a quick illuminant kid
Stumble upon Solomon's tomb, after ruminative basking
Combust a cask of acetylene gases
Rickshaw bandit, okay, but I ain't a grave raider
I respect the dead and life is freedom
So I ain't a slave trader
It's simple, serve and be served
Gain favor with bliss by
Learning to love the little things and
You'll never do vain labor

rofl. yeah…poetesque wasn't even a word until I wrote it, actually. same with cannibalistics, mind-changes, all-too-proper, and maybe a few others. at least they aren't officially in the dictionary as far as I know. gotta love the complexity of English's morphology.


language tends to bend to my whim and not the converse Wink
