do something

what good is eternity
when we count it in seconds
clawing for reason
in the face of common sense
passing off pithy nonsense
in place of earnest attempts
at making the world
a better place in
the miniscule time allotted
bullshit philosophers
and braindead poets
waxing about concepts
they have no grasp on
like love and beauty and
purpose and hope and life
studying things they will
never have in themseleves
and passing it off as
something more than
a waste of the goddamned time
they are so preoccupied with
the world would be better
filled with those that do
instead of those of us
that cannot see the forest
as they collect splinters
and try to assign them meaning
