I know roses are red and violets are blue,
I know all the states alphabetically, too.
I know the Bible (the plot’s a bit blurry),
and the sub-themes of The Sound and The Fury.
I know how the moon orchestrates the tide,
and why otters tend to sleep side by side.
I know heaven’s boring and hell is more fun,
and a Five Card Charlie pays five to one.
I know a few people have read what I wrote,
I know a few things, but most things I don’t.
