ramblings and things

1,018,506 poems read


Got my Dictionary of Quotations,



The Greek Myths of Robert Graves,



Plutarch for beginners’



How The Ancient World Behaves;



 



Back at the Paranoia Poetry Club,



Local Intellectual Branch



And that collection of books



Might just give me a chance



Of understanding the words and



What on earth they’re talking about



Because the first time I went 



I understood precisely nowt.



 



Must spoke with cultured voices, 



Some rambled and some muttered,



Word following word following word



Crammed and packed and cluttered.  



But all spoken with confidence



About what they felt mattered



And, my ignorance being exposed,



I sat both deflated and shattered



 



I’ve got the book of Popular Philosophy



The Book of Modern Scientific thought



Gambling on the hope and presumtion



That wisdom can be bought.
