Catch-22


C2020

Its April of 2020 and Day 03 of A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing Metaphors. Be it a movie, song, painting, book, idiom, etc. I plan to give a perspective to it with an explanation and a 8 line poem. 


 

Day 03 Metaphor: Catch-22

Catch-22 is a novel by Joseph Heller. Catch-22 as a paradox, makes an escape impossible when one attempts to escape. A catch-22 is a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules or limitations. Catch-22 has become one of the best-recognized ways to describe the difficulty of being trapped by contradictory rules.

From logic to scientific research, the term is used in many places. It’s more of a paradox than a metaphor. I personally like this paradox and plan to use it as a metaphor in my poem.

Poem:
Damn, you did it?
Damn, you didn’t?
Damn you!
I have rules,
Made for you,
You don’t know.
I don’t know either,
Oh dear, my catch-22.

Don’t you do that? To the ones you don’t like? Hate begets hate.

Reductio ad absurdum


AtoZ2019R

Its April of 2019 and Day 18 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: reductio ad absurdum
Language: Latin
Meaning: a method of disproving a premise by showing that its logical conclusion is absurd (example: the earth cannot be flat; otherwise, we would find people falling off the edge)

Poem:
it’s an inspiring world.
memes for topper,
trolls for hard work,
mocks from hater,
chatters from jealous,
ridicules from unfit.
now, haters will call this,
reduction ad absurdum.

Interpretation:
The poem presents the irony of modern society. To thrive, one needs to be focused towards goal and keep the unwanted away.
