ILL LOGIC


Circular reason is most usually used
By those who are logically square
They circle around and get all confused
Which is more then logicians can bear

From point A to point D they illogically go
Bypassing both points, B and C
They really can't help it, for they don't seem to know
How useful good logic can be

Post hoc ergo propter hoc
Logicians way of conveying it
Greek to most all common folk
It's the latin way of saying it

After this, therefore, because of this
Is thinking logicians do frown on
It's a common abuse, a logical whiz
Could surely negate and expound on

Locked into faulty thinking
Good logic they've deserted
And do not have an inkling
They're rationally subverted

Let's hope it's not too late
For those poor souls, so tragic
Let's try to set them straight
And teach them reason magic

We'll give it a try and hope we succeed
Instruct them to reason more sensibly
We'll know it was worth it, when they accede
And no longer reason offensively

Impressive. In a way it could be offensive towards all those scientists out there but it has a very nice, gracful indeed touch of humor.
