Read Hegel or give up Philosophy “Poem”

I wrote to professor “I am tormented and truly in rage to conclude that It is impossible to read and understand Hegel”

Read Hegel or give up Philosophy he answered so easily

I couldn’t sleep last night hopeless holding Hegel’s phenomenology of spirit in my hand

How to read Hegel I googled hastily

For a moment I thought of burning that book

Why not write in simple words like Camus or Descartes?

How can one read Hegel?

I woke up this morning with full determination

Starting from first page afresh

Nothing helps except loathing

It is more easy to kill oneself than to read Hegel
