Just close enough to math to solve equations
Not close enough to science to be of use
Just good enough with books to be called clever
But just enthralled enough to feel abuse.
What good does it the world to know a story?
How useful is true mastery of lore?
A mind that fathoms all of human nature
In contrast to a doctor is but poor.
Those who learn not their past will soon repeat it
Those who heed not a tale will come to woe
Those who abandon soul to strengthen body
Sell their eyes for tickets to a show.
