Descarte Before the Horse


According to The Writer's Almanac, today is the birthday of Rene Descartes.


I wonder if Descartes’s a sham,
Less thoughtful than he’s said to be.
He says he thinks, therefore he am.
I wonder if Descartes’s a sham,
Why not, “I am, ergo I’m Sam.”?
It’s all a Frenchman’s fantasy.
I wonder if Descartes’s a sham,
Less thoughtful than he’s said to be.
