They say I feel nothin' but that ain't true.
Then I wouldn't feel that I should rap to you.
Reason conquers passion but it does not destroy.
Just transforms destruction into calm reflective joy.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

People say that animals should have the same rights,
As human beings but this argument I would fight.
Who gives a sh*t about what lives in the oceans,
These whack motherf*ckers just acting out of emotion.
"Let me tell you the truth. The truth is, 'what is'. And 'what should be' is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago. The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is." - Lenny Bruce

"Satan goes to church, did you know that?" - Godsands

"And Genisis 1 does match modern science... you just have to try really hard." - GR33K FR33K5

Stoicism is when you have no emotion,
Mixed with your morals and devotion,
To do whets morally superior,
To those mentally inferior,
Who outburst at animal abuse,
Or the Koreans won't sign a truce,
And that countries spend more on arms then AIDS,
Or the unfair balance of trades

Stoicism is the only practical option,
That philosophers have for adoption,
In their theories of life,
On lessening strife,
As emotion is subjective,
As makes arguments ineffective

Thoughts?
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Read wiki. "Stoics do not seek to eliminate emotion, but to transform it"

I'm the most stoic poet, pick up the mic and blow it.
So narrow-minded my brain is agoraphobic,
Yeh you know it, my mind is the immovable object,
Removing any prospect of delusional concepts.

The perspective I've got, I find it properly effective,
Decisions that I make, you'll find they're logically selected.
I weigh up pros and cons without the weight of emotions,
No need for feelings, I'm a stoic so I'm sticking to my guns.
