The Half of it All

Transcribe a mind for it’s 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

-Eugenia

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

Cheers!

    1. 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.
