An Ocam’s razor cuts
Through concrete and metal;
The cunning irony is
You have to hold it by hand.
A stressful dilemma;
Simplicity and safety vs a soft palm.
A singularity in the philosophy
That gave us Socrates and Plato.
Use Ocam’s razor
Or trust a creature to do right.
Trust a creature of habit,
Subject to self-truism like any other.
There is honor in trying;
Diligence in emotional hygiene.
Risk politely asks us to scrub off
Another’s untimely puke.
For Ocam’s razor can cut
Through anything but this truth:
We all need soft toys and punching bags.
Even the worst of us.
