CONFUSED PERSPECTIVES



The Sunday Muse #78

The Sunday Muse is with us once more. Thank you Shay for this interesting prompt.
I had to look twice, then thrice . . . 



Today's image is called "The Architect"
and is done by 
ERIK JOHANSSON.

CONFUSED PERSPECTIVES

Crumpled paper on the floor,
Attempts at logic by the score.
The architect is 'stretched' it seems
To make sense of his house of dreams.
It works alright until the roof,
And then he thinks, "Another goof!"
Two inside walls, a desk, a floor
Would make some sense with two walls more.


This would solve inside dimensions,
With him inside, with great intentions.
Just like a confused and frightened fly
He tries and tries to work out why 
The roof he's drawn looks just not right
No matter which angle meets his sight.
Two more attempts end in crumpled paper.
Just as he thinks, "I'll end this caper".


"Eureka! he shouts, "I believe I've got it
"All my attempts 'til now were not it.
"I know now how Archimedes felt
When he to science his theory dealt.
The roof is strange, I've drawn it wrong.
The length is short, the width is long.
In fact they are drawn out the wrong way
A 90% turn should work out okay. 


Then the perspective should work out right.
And not to onlookers be a confusing sight.

  4. Oh, I needed this bit of humor today. The art of the mind sometimes isn't the least bit practical.

    1. P.S. Can I ask you a favor, Eddie? Could you say something nice to my friend Arza? HERE. She's a darker shade of blue but at least I got her to start blogging again. I owe you one! Make that two! You, sir, always make us blue folks smile.
