I Am Not A Scholar - Poem by Tsegaye Hailesilassie

I am not a scholar
But because you collect data
And analyze
You are! !

I am not a scholar
But because you speculate
And calculate
But because you ‘publish or perish’
You are! !

Dear scholar, I am not a scholar
But you ‘Think’ you are a scholar
And ‘Therefore’ you are! !
