A paradox is said to be a riddle
that might attract and catch all your attention,
then it will surely make your whole brain twiddle
and you’ll be suffering from hypertension.
The premises are true but the conclusion
is false, which makes you think the world is silly;
you tell yourself it must be an illusion
to be dissolved in coffee, drugs and spirits.
If ever you should find a nice solution,
immediately some others will be claiming
they should condemn you to electrocution
accused of lying and of being feigning.
In sum, a paradox is a conundrum
that finally will make you throw a tantrum.
