INTELLIGENCE WITHOUT A MENTOR:


Intelligence without a mentor
Funny how time just keeps ticking
Right on away -a play righting as
Orientated divinely thought to say
Comedy written intended as portrayed
The soup of plasticity of mind gone astray
Marked by bloody staining by
Aneurisms seeping into gray
Forgotten brain - curious temperamental
Humility silence of pain and evil inspired
Disdain - guided within by inquisition
Lightning –fear forbade following
Imperatives leading mentors left and right
Down slippery slopes onto terrace after
Terrace carving names of lands on
Rubrics in decline -gravestone
Sanctimony to a peoples’ generation
In due time stand and watch veiled
Technology mentors and students grow
Enclosed in electric tracking outside
Embryos inside quantum and macro
Heuristics at play slicing birth pictures
By cross county slides by heat and
Seasonal display - University Boulevards
And El Camino Real mission paths
Ghetto alleys –of mined data –mummies
Seven times seventy days prepared -grave stone
Says E = MC2 -birth stone is Employment =
Money times Currency Squared –God’s will
All formula show themselves pre-prepared.
