The Philosopher's Lament and Hope

What is a philosopher to do
with so much mental goo,
with so much intellectual stew?

With minds on hold.
With brains in mold.
With understanding unglued?
With books unread,
And arguments unsaid?

Answer: work against the tide of wasted thought
and arguments in tatters.
Rebuild the ruins.
Let hope do its wild work against the odds.
Since with God, all things are possible:
"Come let us reason together," says the Lord.
