I think by thinking I do think
and in this thoughtful thinking
I spend each day in wonder
‘bout what I’ve been reflecting over.
From much contemplation
I believe what I once believed
Is now obsolete
So the world turns and hastens
So long as I so contemplate…
I’m suspicious that however conscious
Thinking is easily useless

Leastwise as viciously.

António Patrício Pereira / Gonçalo Julião (translation)
