Me, Myself and Kurt Godel

Written in


I speak the truth,
I cannot be proved.

If I can be proved,
then I cease to exist.
If I cannot be proved,
why do I exist?

Ah, tis a strange loop
a knot of nerves
says “This is I”,
pointing to itself.


Always wanted to write a poem based on Godel’s incompleteness theorems
Let’s see if I can find some time this coming weekend to do a self-referential looping composition to set this poem to song.

    That’s a pretty good poem, to a person who’s dabbled in programming.
