. . . to bad he drank so much!
Not only tortured artists . . .Immanuel Kant
was a real pissant,
Who was very rarely stable. Heidegger
was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table. David Hume
could out consume Schopenhauer
was a beery swine,
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel
There's nothing Nietzsche
couldn't teach ya
'Bout the raising of the wrist, Socrates
, himself, was permanently pissed... John Stuart Mill
, of his own free will,
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill Plato
they say, could stick it away,
Half a crate of whiskey every day! Aristotle
was a bugger for the bottle, Hobbes
was fond of his dram--
And René Descartes
was a drunken fart:
"I drink, therefore I am."
, himself, is particularly missed--
A lovely little thinker,
But a bugger when he's pissed!
