The Great Aha!

Once upon a time there was a dream
And from that dream emerged a fervent wish,
And with that wish a hope so feverish
There sprung a deed improbable to seem;
And from that deed there tracked a slippery slope
Of effects both seen and felt and heard,
Tumbling toward finale so absurd
That reason off with fate seemed to elope.
And with that marriage once again turned ’round
The wheel of dreaming onward to begin
Another play of words whose origin
Gets lost amid intentions quite profound,
But as we know the road to hell is paved
With purposes both good and grandiose,
And even without aim to be verbose
One may unto words become enslaved…
And on and on and blah-blah-blah-blah-blah,
Til all is quite apparently so silly
That one could go on ever willy-nilly
In vain attempt to catch the Great Aha!
