INTELLIGENCE WITHOUT A MENTOR:
Original 10 03 2010


Intelligence without a mentor
Funny how time just keeps ticking
Right on away -is a play righting as
Orientated divinely thought to say
Written as Comedy -as intended
To be portrayed -it’s the soup of
Plasticity of a mind gone astray
Marked by the staining of bloody
Aneurisms seeping into the gray -the
Silence of pain and forgotten brain
Curious temperament humility and
The evil inspired disdain -within
Guided by inquisition lightning –fear
Forbade following the imperatives
Leading all the mentors to the left
And to the right –down the slippery
Slopes onto terrace after terrace
Of the names of lands with their
Rubrics in decline -gravestone
Sanctimony to a peoples’ generation
In due time -stand and watch the
Veil of shell as technology mentors and
Students grow -enclosed in electric
Tracking outside the embryo inside
Quantum and macro heuristics at play
Down cross county aside throughways by
University Boulevards and El Camino Real
Mission paths and ghetto alleys –inside
Mounds of mined data –mummies seven
Times seventy days prepared -grave stone
Says E = MC2 -birth stone is Employment =
Money times Currency Squared –God’s will
All formula show themselves pre-prepared.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
