Know It All! - Poem by David Taylor
The date the Athenians came to strife
the way that Homer ended life
the name of Henry's second wife
the winners of the cup
in the year that terror struck.
A master mind would know it all
as he sits and watches shadows
on a dark Socratic wall.
But I wouldst know
that which when truly seen
nothing here remains to be known
and brings an end
to my fascination in
those changing shadows
dancing in the cave of men.
