NIETZSCHE

Nietzsche was never one of the Greats

despite the encyclopedias

and endless adoring teenagers.

The metaphysics is worse than Plato’s

and Plato’s

whom he hated with a passion

is pretty shitty.

He wanted us to believe

he hadn’t read Darwin

or William James

despite borrowing with gusto

from both.

He thought Napoleon justified the Terror

and other such nonsense.

But like us

Nietzsche mourned that poor mare

in Dostoevsky’s novel

and boy

was he a fine psychologist.
