Poem – I Know Why

My absent minded fact finded barely hiding
mind of mine oh sure it’s fine but maybe
I should hide what thoughts dance inside
cause the volume and meanings
the quantity and quality may be
far too frightful for sharing

Mass consumption of all the marbles
rattling around in this pumpkin
would really be something but
I fear the lumping would result in
klumping of brains that sound
like an empty thumping

I’m not all that wise nor all that good looking
but I’m smarter than your average guy
walking along staring at the sky
not knowing why it’s blue
or why the clouds keep passing by
but if you ask me, yes, indeed

I know why
I know how
I know where
but I don’t know who

My absent minded step off kindly
mind of mine oh sure it’s wide
cast a line and hook the swine
a fools errand to even try
explain the neurotic connections
with even an ounce of accuracy

Mass consumption would really be something
but these marbles would break your teeth
I fear the bleeding and consecutive screeching
would break the minds of all who whined
why oh why oh why oh why did I
even try to even try to wrap my mind

I’m not all that wise not all that hot
but I’m much smarter than the average guy
walking along staring at the sky
not knowing why the stars shine
or why the sparkle with this rhyme
but if you ask me, yes indeed

I know why
I know how
I know where
but I don’t know who
