So many things that I once learned as a child
are either obsolete or downright wrong:
that mushrooms, celery have no nutrition,
that coffee and chocolate are quite bad.
Jupiter now has seventy-nine moons?
Who knew men and women are preparing
their own demise through over-population?
Or that religion could be so corrupt?
That science-denial would be a fad?
That knotweed would rule your backyard garden?
Can’t we just elect a big bullfrog king
to solve our problems with his magic ring?
