The Ice Delivery Man

I am tongue tied
by the ice man,
idea man.

Tongue tied
while I doubt and he
wins bets,
knows everything,

Makes up theories that
become facts.
It takes no work 
to gain an education,

He invents 
an education and
knows how
his bare ideas will 

make him rich.
I shut up.
He discourses 
when the insiders hear him.
