Knowledge

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

🙌

"

In one corner of the garden

I planted a knowledge seed

Soon with care and love

Grew a full library to read

 

There knowledge blossomed

Filling endless pages

Every bit of knowledge gleaned

Down through the ages

 

Shakespeare’s works and Ptolemy

Thoreau and Attenborough

The extensive knowledge there

Was overwhelmingly thorough

 

Why creeks run down, not up

Something about gravity

Why it seems at least one tooth

Ends up with a cavity

 

How planets were formed

Why the Earth has an axis

But still, not one damn thing

On how to avoid paying my taxes

What you consider to be knowledge is revealing in itself. Not sure Shakespeare, Thoreau, & Attenborough would find my habitat sustaining! *wink! wink!* Some teeth are too watertight for cavities . . . the wealthy know all about not paying taxes . . . and there you have it! Maybe you should try fertilizing your tree of knowledge to see if it brings forth more interesting reading (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

If fertilizer will reveal the taxes thingy I will immediately start shooti.. read more
When you randomly plant a Seed... and do not think about it ...
it seems to flourish. That may be the secret to Education...
the more relaxed... the more beautiful it becomes. This Spring
we have beautiful healthy green "shoots" reaching for the Sun.
We will be surprised to discover the personality of each one...
when it blooms. The "bounty" of the Earth is our passage to
a better Life and a generous attitude. truly, Pat
