Straw Man: Arbitrary Absolute
"The limit as X approaches infinity
Is something for which I have much affinity.
Don't just give me better, or just good enough;
I want to be seen with more absolute stuff.
"The integer's integrity
Holds a great deal of appeal for me.
When I zero out flaws, then I have one:
A victory, fulfilled unbegun.
"Your attitude, I judge as whole
From observations of your soul
As seen by mannerisms in your style,
Like the frequency with which you smile.
"Don't give me range, don't give me change,
Don't tell me the world's all fuzzy and strange.
It may seem absurd, but it makes me feel fine
To act as if I were, quite simply, divine."
