Sartre, Beckett, and Kafka

Jean-Paul Sartre,
I wished he woulda
Lightened up and lived a little,
Wrote a treatise and taught me how to do it too.


Samuel Beckett
Couldn’t hack it,
A psychiatrist helped him see tomorrow —
Wonder if he’s still waiting for Godot.


Franz Kafka
Felt the angst of Gregor Samsa —
A man morphed giant insect —
But he, like Josef K., just wanted peace and rest.

  1. wonder how they would feel seeing their true colours and distinct characteristics described with such candor. I enjoyed the rhyming and humour you sprinkled all over this piece, becoming quite the poet now David!
