Daniel Artemas Harmon
Pass on what you know
Body, you say, or soul,
not understanding the whole.
When worms crawl through your brain
nothing of soul will remain-
there is no separate role.
Flick on the light: It will glow.
Flick it off and it will go.
So, when you die, will your mind,
go out and leave nothing behind
unless you pass on what you know.
And if you know nothing, like me,
you'll simply go pfft! and not be.
