i only EAT worms on WORMDAY

WORLD BORE ONE I don’t know very much at all But I know oak trees grow strong and tall I don’t know why I sometimes stumble and fall I know what I have, what I want and that which I need And that each oak tree starts with one tiny seed I can’t explain why some things are good or bad I don’t understand why there’s less happy than sad I do know that all I want for my good deeds is a simple I can't date a debutante who defines the word "style" I don’t pretend to know about important things But I do know about wedding rings Not that there’s a woman waiting for me Because most women want their swains to have a diploma and a degree Please don’t ask me queries I can answer not I can tell you which cup of sassafras tea is cold and which is hot I can feed the chickens, milk the cows and do some other chores But I cannot for the life of me explain why there are so man f*****g wars © 2011.…Phreepoetree

I like the dichotomy of what you know vs. what you don't - the deep things compared to the daily/natural things in life. It's a very good write with a powerful ending. p.s. I think you're missing a word after simple? smile maybe?
