The Spirit of Scientific Enquiry​​















Definition
(within relative limits of accuracy)
is as straightforward as the devil in the clock


knock

Exact
Efficient
Not to be denied
(A fitting god to pray to for the ciphers who have died?)
All life provides statistics for the living mind
That means to aid the great crusade of destitute mankind


knock

Clean
Clinical
Without the single flaw
(prepared to face the simple truth of nature’s tooth and claw?)
The structure of our being is laid open to the bone
to prove that we are ultimately hopelessly alone


knock

Proud
Pathetic
Clown between two sticks
(nothing more than vanity and petty party tricks?)
My only strength the tendency to fight those who deny me
and must I now bow down before the Spirit of Scientific Enquiry?
