Philosophical Outlook

by Ed Robinson

Berkeley was an idiot.
Descartes was a bum.
John Locke was out of it.
Wittgenstein was scum.
Bacon was a moron.
Schopenhauer's lame.
Plato thinks he's Socrates,
And Hobbes should be ashamed.
Neitzsche is depressing.
Dostoevski was a bore.
St. Augustine is really good
At making people snore.
Philosophy is well worth while,
But we should really think
Of finding some new thinkers whose
Philosophies don't stink.
