The Half of it All

17399-Glass-Of-Color

Transcribe a mind for its knowledge

Spilled ink not learned in college

A glass half full of the smallage

Fine brandy subject to a tallage

Sad souls sell their knowledge

A glass half empty of the smallage

Creative senses lost in college

Witless souls live that on the edge

Their expiration beyond the ledge

This poem is dedicated to anotherwisemonkey The challenge is to write a poem using words that rhyme with knowledge. 

Smallage-the celery, Apium graveolens, especially in its wild state. wild celery Tallage-Medieval History. a tax paid by peasants to the lord of their manor.

    • Thank you, John. I am a fan of Ogden Nash and his unconventional style. I hadn’t thought about him until your mention. Thank you for bringing him to my attention.
