Verbal Confirmation: Acting on motion

To be, to have, to think, to move — which of these verbs is the one you feel most connected to? Or is there another verb that characterizes you better?


To be or not to be,

That is certainly not the question.

To have is very much on the cards.

I think, therefore, I am.

And to move is the name of the game,

Loco—motion.

Do you have another notion?

—Linus Fernandes

Truth Serum: Q & A

You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?


A truth serum have I,

That you might choose to take or not.

(I need your consent.)

But then you’d have to trust,

That what you confess would not be repeated

—Ad nauseam.

Or would you rather 

Sign a disclaimer,

That what’s said under the influence,

is practically inadmissible 

In court or elsewhere.

The questions I would ask then

Are neither here nor there.

—Linus Fernandes.
