An unremarkable circumstance
brought about a great change in me,
an abrupt intuitive advance
toward understanding Absurdity.
Imagine the cause and the effect
if the center and circuitry
of my limited intellect
had been wired differently.
Why, I might be among the saved,
forgiven of all my mortal sins,
no matter how utterly depraved
and deplorable they might have been.
