Rookie - 15 Points (10/10/69 / Louisville, Kentucky)

Education


Those with understanding
Who transmit to others
Their fountain of wisdom,
Let them be lauded and extolled.
For only the wellsprings of knowledge
Can douse the fires of ignorance.
Only then can leaders arise
Who can execute fair justice,
Raise the poor to prosperity
And unite the people.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
