I have problems with philosophy (a poem)

Steve Martin once said something about philosophy being ‘just enough to screw you up for the rest of your life’…

Oh, in small doses it’s all right
but some philosophers take things too far

I was fine with Nausea
but Being and Nothingness?

I have a feeling Sartre loved the sound of his voice above everything else

Either way
that’s six months of my life I’ll never get back

and I still got no answers

After that
I decided it was pointless

to look further
