ABOUT THE GUY WHO KNEW NOTHING

Once people were amazed
That he, who knew nothing,
Was a poet.
Nothing in particular:
Knowing everything
It’s hard to be a poet.

Another time, people were amazed
That the guy who knew nothing
Was a composer.
Nothing in particular:
Knowing everything
It’s hard to be a composer.

Then
People were amazed
Why that guy who knew nothing
Wasn’t a prophet.
Nothing in particular:
Knowing nothing,
It’s hard to be a prophet.
