And There Was Nothing To Be Done About It

Hume's philosophy was that Hume's philosophy
Would appeal to us if we felt like liking it,
Whether or not his philosophy was correct.

A Cretan could not have put paradox better.
Name me a cosmologist who explicated
The arrow of time as Cupid's arrow, asking

Whose victim heart the barbed dart forever aims at.
A consistent direction, Aristotle knew,
Implies a target, if only dissipation.

The great archers, those who bullseye infinity,
Having shot wait expectantly for what they know
To trace the full arc, find its mark, and murder them.
