BrewNSpew Cafe – July 16, 2018


”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

    You are like a living, breathing, walking talking metronome, Eugenia.
    Reading this aloud is joy immeasurable.

    I do love learning new words and using them. I used casuistry in my post. It was a stretch but I think it worked.
