a colleague of Einstein, no less,
logic for Goedel was paramount
yet madness dwelled inside his mind
for he feared accidental poisoning.
His wife tasted his meals before he ate
but she became ill and in no fit state
to sample his food anymore.
This man of mathematics starved to death
proving the fragility of the human psyche
for there is no logic in madness,
an irrational obsession
which could be viewed as Lucifer's friend
drove him to a sad...and untimely end.
