I go to books when I am happy or lonely,
But there are only letters and sounds that I can't understand.
Somewhere someone mixed them all up
And they lay scattered all over the land.
One persons calls that word something to be desired,
And that it brought one great fortune and fame.
But another person calls it a perversion,
That it blackens the honor of a name.
I heard a child say that it was too much work
To learn a word when they would not need it.
Another child screamed in my ear I was mean
And when I said a word they would not heed it.
Among all the pride and confusion of a generation,
I found that learning took a holiday;
What should have been a day of joy and knowing
Turned out to be the Great Folly-day.
Proverbs 16:22 Understanding is a wellspring of life
unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
