The Crying of Hat 10 1/2

Deja View

Deja View

Events in life happen when they must
A meaningless assertion at its very best
Events in life do happen when they do
So, they must happen when they must

This tautological sophistry oft repeated
Is proclaimed to proclaim proclamation
Proof of nothing can only prove nothing
There is nowhere to go from this point

Therefore, I shall continue until I arrive
That must mean that I’m going nowhere
Fast, stuck in one place, moving quickly
Yet, I cannot leave until after I’ve arrived

And I cannot arrive if I have not left yet
Wonderstruck; I’m lost in space and time
Better than the other arguments offered
It lets me be here and there, everywhere

But nowhere all the time I’m here or gone
Occupying the center, as I cling to the edge
While moving often somewhere in-between
Admit it, say you know exactly what I mean

Just look for me everywhere you are going
Though never, ever expect to run into me
Scattered quite far and wide, atoms matter
Think you I am as mad as Lewis’ rare hatter

Ten and one half could sum a closer answer
When solving all of life’s complex mysteries
Confused and crying, as I sit in my weedy lot
Forty-nine may also be found correct, or not
