"The man who knows something knows that he knows nothing at all." Badu
A simple pearl of wisdom that holds a delicate truth.
Can you handle that we may not know even half of what we think we do?
Sure the thought is very scary
What if man's wealth of knowledge was just imaginary?
Even the truths you considered legendary
Passed down by scholars considered exemplary
One after another spoon fed the tales of fairies
Truth is we couldn't handle the truth
I'll bet it's raw and gritty and sure to uproot
All beliefs, all customs, and all lies...
We have no clue; it's just safer to pretend we do.
Typhani M. Roberson
