Teach It Round - Poem by gershon hepner

Teach it round or teach it flat,
teach it standing on its head,
teach it wearing a hard hat,
teach it lying in your bed,
any way you want to teach
is acceptable to me,
if it truly helps you reach
people when they disagree.

If you only teach what you
believe is truly flat or round,
you’re imposing your own view,
whether it is wrong or sound.
Let men guess what you believe,
so that they themselves must think;
like a conjuror your sleeve
invisible as magic ink.
