Rene Descartes

About Rene Descartes

That oven in which he had his revelation?
For years I pictured a bread oven.
Turns out he was living in an unused wood kiln.
Descartes stayed at sieges and trained with soldiers.
Six sailors decided to rob him.
They changed their minds.
He met his former fiancé.
The cockerel she was with took exception.
In one minute he was disarmed.
Do you want him to die?
No.
Madam, you are very beautiful.
But I love truth more.

On the flip side:
He murdered the Queen of Sciences.
Theology, in case your wondering.
He murdered Theology as surely as
Cervantes murdered Chivalry.

The division he introduced into
The early modern era has lead to
Our present ecological crisis.

I like the man.
The philosopher is not all cakes and ale.
