Pensive Ponderings

Reflections on things that matter.

NaPoWriMo Day 14: Humanities

watercolor books

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.
