”Where do architects and designers get their ideas?” The answer, of course, is mainly from other architects and designers, so is it mere casuistry to distinguish between tradition and plagiarism? – Stephen Bayley

Word of the weekcasuistry-(noun)-a resolving of specific cases of conscience, duty, or conduct through interpretation of ethical principles or religious doctrine. The use of clever but unsound reasoning, especially in relation to moral questions; sophistry. Synonyms-specious reasoning, equivocation, sophism, speciousness.

 Too many meaningless scrawls on walls

even tho thought as soul-baring to all

Perhaps, cut-rate casuistries used to resolve

and the intent’s not of value for all involved

You know for those seeking to be clever

 must give serious thought to their endeavors

Methinks a specious argument is a flimsy attempt

and a waste of time that could be well spent

Tis important to be authentic in what we think

and even more so when we spill our ink
