Know-It-All

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.
