Occam’s Razor

Home / My Original Poetry / Occam’s Razor

There is a trait in us, innate,
To twist and complicate
The work at-hand to be too grand;
In effort — far too great.

But the measure of endeavor
That the wise do tend to favor
Is to see how things do cut up
Underneath of Occam’s Razor!

When things evolve you must resolve —
You will do well to recall
The simple answer is the best
With all else being equal.
