74. Teacher (Poem) 

 

Everything is just so exciting, isn’t it? 
Quite incomprehensible, but it is, 

Wag tail wag. 

Joy sparks from you, remorseless, free, 

Satisfied you seem, with nothing. 

Lick lick pant. 

Same eyes see same pearls, same life in same world, 

Same time as mine, same signs as mine, 

Think think think.

I only abstract in my superior mind,

One with which I’ve learnt how to choose not to be happy. 

Who wins? 

You. 

Will you teach?

Me.
