to know 
what I know
is truly
to know 
some say
it was now
the sum
of others
say it was then
but to know
what is then
and what is now
vs what we knew
and what is new
is to not say no
to what i know….
what i know
is a knot and
if you want
it’ll not you too
so to show
what i know
is not to
question that
but rather
to ask of this
from you who
wants a wish…

are you sure?
about this
not only does
a mind not wind
when broken
but a pro ken
comes in handy
when a man
in a hat 
comes knocking…
keep it with you
what i show you
don’t close 
your eyes 
for nothing…

naughty knight
can bring delight
if you know 
whats not 
vs naughty 
in sight…
