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.

Reasonable from A to Z

Its April of 2018 and Day 18 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing ‘Emotion’ a day picked from the bag of life, with an 8 line poem and a thought.

R is Reasonable.


Poem:

The genie lamp,
The enchanted wand,
The fireworks,
The sense of humor,
Have announced:
Dear mankind,
We can stop being reasonable too!

Thought:
reasonable
