September poetry challenge – Day 19

Simultaneously

You
Need
One cat
And a flask
Containing poison –
When does reality collapse,
And what good is the cat that is both alive and dead?

Classic prisoners

While
A
Is free
To betray,
And B is the same,
Pure rationality dictates
The course of actions that the prisoners aren’t taking.
There’s certainly lots to be said about human stupidity.
