Meaning and Meaninglessness!


A sea of houses –
Box after box where little lives
Like bees in their hives –
Make sense of it all at home
Over the breakfast, the dinner
And the tea table -
Then somewhere between the sheets
Limbs stretch
To encompass a universe

So as not to be lost
In a bottomless pit of pity -
They are pulled by a gravity
Beyond their ken
In the hope that
Some little life will out,
Will come screaming
Into all this disorder
They are ordering.

If nature abhors a vacuum,
Humankind cannot abide chaos –
It must stamp meaning
On the meaningless –

This is the meaning of meaninglessness and
The meaninglessness of meaning.
