Madame Blossom's Book of Poems

I have, at times, been exasperated at the things that we people,  normally do that are actually absurd.  The absurdity of this so called modern life.  Most people would argue that it is not absurd, simply because this is the norm.  Meaning a lot of OTHER people are doing it, therefore it must be okay and not absurd.

Absurd.. let me look up the meaning.

ab·surd   [ab-surd, -zurd]
utterly or obviously senseless, illogical, or untrue; contrary to all reason or common sense; laughably foolish or false.
the quality or condition of existing in a meaningless and irrational world.

Some men have lost the ability to think and judge for themselves.  That's sad, because man (and jinns) are the only known creations, given these abilities but we don't use them for ourselves. 

Now there are a lot of fuss over doing things that are actually of no benefit whatsoever to the final objectives - but instead, making more complicated for people to reach the good objectives.  In fact, some of these objectives have become blurred because of all the 'frills' of reaching it, that some of us don't even know THE objectives.   One big example is the objectives of an education.

Have we thought deeply about the objectives of sending our children to school and the objectives of getting an education and the objectives of learning the subjects learned in schools?
