POEM

KNOW  
I know nothing about the geography that is found in books   
I know nothing about History, Biology or Science books
I know nothing about the French I took
I do know something about
Oppression
Mental health
Polluted creeks
Spiritual progress
Streams in the wasteland
The hope for our many tomorrows  
Some amazing things that are brand new
I do Know
Wordsmith
Connoisseurs
It is good
To  Gather
In our dry parched land
For
Our Super Soul Début

    I enjoy your spin on the song, “Don’t Know Much about History” and to “The Wasteland.” I agree it is good to gather.

    I know this is a good poem. And it’s always great when we can gather for our super soul debut.
