Thought’s reduced and so is meaning
To the simplest common terms
In expressions dullard-leaning:
“Because feels” should make us squirm.
Even “doing science” is annoying:
What exactly does that tell?
Just so does thought hide behind cloying
“All the feels” – oh what the hell!
Go ahead: start every spoken
Line with “so.” Screw logic, thought.
Babble till our brains are broken.
Thinking’s hard, but spewing’s not.
Throw “regretful” out the window
With “distressed” and “envious.”
“Sad” will do for all that’s not
“So very happy.” Yes, that’s best.
There. Now see how comfy we all
Are with fewer words to choose?
What’s that dying? Oh – it’s nothing –
Just the neurons we once used.
Now that we’ve dispensed with all that
Cumbersome, annoying thought,
We’re all equal, inoffensive, infantile
And dull – so what?
