I am the very model of a self-re­curs­ive modeler

I am the very model of a self-re­curs­ive modeler

My con­scious­ness en­com­passes it­self in many meta layers

To Rus­sel’s para­dox, I have the set of all the answers

I cut the hair of all the non-self-barber­ing hairdressers

I think about me think­ing of my thoughts with regularity

In my Cartesian theater, I see my­self with clarity

I tell you that I lie without the slight­est contradiction

The story of my life is told in meta-metafiction

My in­ner sim­u­lator rep­lic­ates the total universe

I sim­u­late my­self as I am writ­ing out this line of verse

My secrets are un­known to me, I keep them confidential

Re­fer­ring to my­self I’d say I’m quite self-referential

My strange loop’s Escherer than yours, it’s Bacher and it’s Godeler

I am the very model of a self-re­curs­ive modeler
