A thing that’s a thingy is sometimes a thing
And a thingy that’s a thing is surely a thing
But a thing that’s a thing is not always a thingy
And a thing that’s a thing isn’t always a thingy
So what is a thing? Is it also a thingy?
What about things that are things but not thingies?
And also those things that are thingies, not things
Are they things too, because they are thingies?
But things are not things and they aren’t always thingies
And thingies aren’t things – they could be just thingies
But things that are things are most definitely thingies
While thingies that are things, maybe they’re thingies?
So what makes up a thing? Is it many things?
Is it nothing at all, or all of the things?
Is everything a thing? Or nothing a thing?
Or are they all thingies, while anything’s a thing?
So goes the story of the history of things
Or is it the thing of history,or the thingy of things?
There are too many things, my heads bleeding things
Or are those all thingies, or something of a thing?
Started off as a way to annoy a friend, and was challenged to turn it into a poem. Well, this is why you don’t challenge me to write silly things. Because I will.
