How, Then?



I am watching a movie
where Clyde Beatty is played by Cary Grant.
Tomorrow I will watch one
where he's played by Kirk Douglas.
The lions are always played by themselves.

Neither movie exists.
Clyde Beatty doesn't exist
(only the concept of Clyde Beatty exists).
Soon the lions will no longer exist.
How, then, shall I be entertained?
