Undesirable Cocksure-ity ….!

The question is
Whether egg came first
Or the chicken came first
There is quite a debate & confusion
No one at all cocksure about correct conclusion

A small smart boy answered
It is very simple
Egg is first & chicken thereafter
For we have Eggs for breakfast
And chicken for lunch or dinner thereafter

A guest invited for dinner
When asked this question
Replied “I like both,
You can serve any first
And the other afterwards”…

There are many such questions
Like the egg & chicken
Which we are unable to answer
Thinking & pondering about them
Can be a joyful exercise to keep mind sharper
But if we feel miserable not finding an answer
It is time; throw such question in the basket of waste paper
For there are so many such questions we don’t know answers
Still life goes on joyfully amid all delighting wonders;
Not necessary, rather unadvisable & undesirable,
That for everything we should be cocksure….

“ Vishvnand “

    good one. 🙂 what fun!? if we know everything?

    • Vishvnand says:

      Yes, very true. The real fun is in groping for the truth and what the way leading to it reveals. As they say Happiness is not a destination but the very manner of traveling.
      Thanks for the comment.

    I am cocksure that this is a masterpiece of poetry moralistic and entertaining at the same time.

    • Vishvnand says:

      @siddha Nath Singh
      I feel delightfully humbled by the wording of your delightful comment on the poem. Thank you indeed so very much.

    sometimes I feel its good that we don’t know everything, that way we are eager to learn new things

    • Vishvnand says:

      Yes, very true. But the fact is also that we can never ever know most of the things. What we know is always very little and that too often incorrect. 🙂
