A Fool’s Almanac - Poem by Roland Cho

We like to understand things
Even beyond our levels of understanding.
Seeking to understand what we should know,
And never knowing what we should understand.

Those who know are never fooled,
Because, they understand fools.
Those who sought understanding all, are always fooled;
Since fools understand that they know.

Knowing is enough and easy to understand.
But, not understanding the un-understandable
Is what we don’t know
If you know this poem, you need to understand it
To understand fools!
If you understand this poem, then you
Know what you can’t understand.
Don’t be fooled by a fool!
