Why does Jesus have no beard?
Why does Daredevil have fear?
Why is a black hole a mirror?
Why is Kanye East?

Why is Mos Def least?
Why is famine a feast?
Why don’t trees grow leaves?
Why didn’t the Titanic sink?

Why don’t pens use ink?
Why do none of us think?
Why isn’t Hennessey a drink?
Why is Hilary president?

Why is Eminem black?
Why isn’t Iggy Azalea wack?
Why hasn’t Pharrell ever produced a track?
And why is 2Pac still breathing?

Based upon The Western Barbarian with No Beard,
Case 4 of the Gateless Gate
