song of infinities

There once was a mathematician who lectured in part

on infinities and every single lecture without fail

some guy in the audience stood up and was like what about about the human heart

which made the mathematician want to put his head in a pail

for minutes on end for decades he tried to explain

all the ways in which the human heart is necessarily finite

until he was overcome by annoyance so strong it produced physical pain

and decided he had been wasting his time in hindsight

there's a moral to this story if morals are what you're looking for

that moral is don't stress out over a metaphor
