Boxes of knowledge
Hey people, listen up!
This is the story
Of the leopard who lays in the land of the free
He landed up in a hot room in the land of the doom
The land of the hateful human
He was turned into a box
A box where I now put my pens
It's the destiny they choose for him
No one's ever asked him
Maybe he wanted to become a sandwich?
Now, I'll tell you why it isn't absurd
It is after all a mere metaphor
Though those leopard boxes make some teenagers happy
The true story is sad
So, people, listen up!
Little children live in the land of the free
The land in the land of school
The land of hateful teachers
Where they are turned into boxes
Boxes full of knowledge, of know-how
But empty of liberty, they are
The worst thing is
No one's ever asked if they wanted to become sandwiches
No one ever asks
Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers-
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
