I am not sure what to make of this: part word play, part cryptic philosophy, part humour...

The anomaly of the situation
fits its enormity
And the enormity of the situation
Suits its anomaly
When naming the parts
it is best to know that
The name is part
Of the part.
If a part has no name
Because his name is anonymous
It is no part without a name;

Nameless and anonymous
It is only an anomaly.
Calling a name
By the wrong part
Is an enormity
The enormity of which
Suits its anomaly. .
