Philosophy by Arthur Shotmind

     My childish friends are outside 
     Playing games with philosophy.
     Where is my catcher's mitt?

     An errant hypothesis crashes through the neighbors' window
     And lands in the living room.
     All are afraid to retrieve it.

     "Ye gods," cries the transcendalist,
     "We'd better make tracks."

     Here it is.  My mitt was under the chemistry set.
     Acid holes in the leather.
     Toss me a paradox.
