There Are Ordinary Things Under the Sun

THERE ARE ORDINARY THINGS UNDER THE SUN BUT DONALD TRUMP IS NOT ONE Let us speak of ordinary things Such as Thracian wars and ascendancy of kings Consulting Greek writers of the Second Sophistic Might provide insight that must be intrinsic Then we can move to the more mundane Asia Minor's thousand gods might help to explain Why there continues a lack of wisdom and intelligence Which is sine qua non for a paucity of eptness These virtues are lacking in one who purdures to astound How a gasbag of hot air can remain earthbound He retains characteristics of cosmic black holes Knowledge falls in but where it goes no one knows
