What Was Learn'd


Aisles of white, and read
By scholars and hoodlums alike,
Segregated by understanding, sight
Of the future is too often said.
The march of the Pedagogue
Held count by the beads of the Abacus,
Speak in tongues, of an analog
Idea, said to be unanimous.
what has been learn'd of me,
regardless the monochromatic;
I have been helped to see
What potential in an Idea.
No matter what was said of you, the Idea flows within You.
Doubtful of your true self, the Idea flows within You.
