Or shoot his roots from a baboon?
No useless matter to a foolish studied man.
We witness the spectacle of doom;
As the seed that first burst – to the air
Of an over-inflated balloon.
Why so mad perfection – niche?
Intellectual perfectionist –
In glorified scholastics –
An acrobatic intellect.
As knots pressed through pulp – it intermixed,
Elevated with a mercurial twist.
Inspired by evolution,
Despising democratic institutions
An anachronism in revolutions.
Faith withheld by tainted inadequacies.
Inflicting the godly with inferiorities.
Philosophical schisms were his legacy.
Last days spent in gloom.
In the asylum of the insane.
The tomb being that remedy
That removed his pain.
Nietzsche, we’ll all recall your kitsch
In fest to steal our way home behind the wheel.
Gassed as guessed!
In the same vein, not aiming to be rude,
Were you proud or shrewd?
As so many of us – crude –
Shifting in the sand.
