The Bloke Who Thinks He Knows It All


The bloke who thinks he knows it all only the other day
The angora goat in the yard nearby is a white sheep I heard him say
I thought he is having me on but to my great surprise
That a long haired goat is not a sheep he did not realize.

The bloke who thinks he knows it all has been to University
And in his lounge room on the wall hangs his B A Degree
And he is much a better educated man than me
Still between a long haired goat and a sheep the difference he can't see.

The bloke who thinks he knows it all of course don't know it all
The more we know the less we realize we know those words of wisdom I recall
And he who thinks he knows it all has still so much to learn
The difference between a goat and a sheep he has yet to discern.

The bloke who thinks he knows it all has quite some way to go
And he has lots to learn yet and there's heaps and heaps to know
About the World we live in and there are many books to read
Still we will never learn much if we talk but never heed.

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
