Aut Caesar

By Theodor Damian

I’ve had too much

of too much

in the old times they used to say something

I don’t want to hear anymore

Aut Caesar, aut nihil

I don’t want Caesar anymore

I want nihil

nihil, not nihilism

I kindly ask philosophers not to confound me

nihil brings me somewhere

nihilism nowhere.
