A hill of beans in a crazy world


Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie Casablanca from 1942
Rick Blaine: Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Some day you’ll understand that.

He said: Well, if it’s not important
for you to meet me, I won’t come!

I said: It’s not important for me to
see you but I believe it’s important
for you. Yet I would like to see you.

But since then I have thought a lot
of what’s really “important” in life.

View the world today, I’d say to have
a belonging to a place is “important”.

A home and money enough for living,
that’s “important”. Not to be used for
others’ purposes, that’s “important”.

He wants to cut his ties to gets across
continents and borders to see me. But
why? For love? I dare not believe in it!

Love ties over continental borders are
in today’s world, civil disobedience! He
isn’t exactly the rebel type, still he says
he loves me. He claims it’s “important”!

Yet, to travel to meet is not  important.
Too often, he doesn’t understand what
I say. But such is not important to him.

Love! What is love? Linguistic confusion
and romantic delusions: we quarrel over
nothing! But if he want to see me: okay!

With him, something in the world is good.
