Stupid, Stubborn & Mad

Stupid, Stubborn & Mad

you're stupid
and stubborn
and it will drive you
mad

you need
to accept
the contradictions
and hypocrisies
of belief in something
preferably
in many things
for picking and choosing
what you want to be
today
then something else
to better suit 
the situation
of tomorrow

for this,
simple fool,
is adaptation
this,
simple fool,
is a thing
of mere
survival
and 
procreation

you need to choose
things to believe
otherwise
you're left 
with nothing
no passion
and no beliefs
which 
to believe in nothing
is madness
and the nothing
of your madness
making passionless existence
so unbearably
lukewarm

you might say
i believe
in what i can see
and touch
without understanding
string theory
black holes
or dark matter
without knowing
if they
are just bullshit
meant to obfuscate
the bullshit
of pure
materialism

you may put your faith
in what reason can supply
and nothing else
rejecting
absurdities
and logical contradictions
but it's impossible
to know enough
which leaves you
knowing
believing
in very little
which may be worse
than believing a lot
even when it's false
cause at least something
is 
something

you're stupid
and stubborn
and it will drive
you mad
leaving you
weary 
brokenhearted
and alone
for a long time
maybe
forever
with nothing
but your 
vacancy
and
madness

you're stupid
and stubborn
and it will drive
you mad
someday
to not accept
all the folly

for
what you see 
as their folly
they see
as inane in you
for not accepting
any form
of their follies
known to them
as insanities too
but rugged and time tested
and less severe than your own
and proven
over and over again
to offer them 
something
at least

it's your folly
expecting
desiring
certainty
without contradiction
without hypocrisy
without folly
when any fool should know
perfection
doesn't exist
not even
in the beauty
of math

you'll go mad
on your own
cause it's easier
safer
more assuring
more efficient
to get through this thing
as a part of something
bound
and bonded 
by ideas
beliefs
common understandings
the important things
THE most important things:
the bounding
the bonding
not the content
or quality
of what
binds

this
you must accept
in order to avoid
the madness
the solitary
uncertain madness
of your own making
rejecting it 
for the assurances
the safety in numbers
of the certainties 
in their
madnesses

you're stupid
and stubborn
and you will go mad
or perish
not believing
as the chameleon does
it is both lizard
as well as that
which it mimics
for the chameleon
trembling among the leafs
is more easily noticed
than the one
absurdly confident
in being both

you're stupid
and stubborn
and you will go mad
of boiling brain
crazy from the heat
in a sweltering
summer blaze
of your unnecessary
exhausting
backbreaking
labor
when your foolish toil
is so cheaply
and easily
there
waiting 
to be contracted
out

you're stupid
and stubborn
and you will go mad
lying awake at night
for far too long
when you could 
so easily
have evenings
of far more refreshing
slumber

you're stupid
and stubborn
and you will go mad
without choosing
a set
of beliefs
overthinking
by what method
should i choose
from their festival
of hypocrisies
contradictions
and absurdities?
leaving you
stuck
in the paradox of choice
its paralysis
your madness
of nothing
justified by
masquerading as
the virtue
of your commitment
to truth

you're stupid
and stubborn
and you will go mad
for not accepting things
that don't make sense
you'll go mad
eventually
for not embracing
the most common
absurdities
and nonsense
