Do you think the abyss
Has nothing better to do
Than to look back into you?
Nietzsche – a philosopher.
A philologist and a madman,
Could improvise on the piano.
If not for a furious mustache
Women might have called him handsome.
The abyss deemed him a worthy foe.
Nowadays, when you peer at it
It will call out “Friedrich?
Is that you?” Have some pity
And turn your eyes elsewhere.

Abyss, I've heard, is the only English word directly traceable to a Sumerian root. With that taken care of, why has no in Canada ever read this blog?
