Education

Is education any good?

Some people believe in superstition, touch wood.

To educate means to draw out not to force in.

Look it up, begin.

Half the subjects in university are there to make money for the university, they are not real, you see.

Can art appreciation be taught, can knowledge be bought?

What’s wrong with working with your hands, with tools?

The working class are taken for fools.

Maths and science, reading and writing, they are good. And some few others, use your common sense, you should.

Don’t let them turn you into a fool at school.

Brain

Where is a man with a better brain than me?

I need some help you see.

I mean what the Hell, oh well.

I know what I want but not how to do it, I’m not a bloody expert in everything.

I know almost nothing about some things, how can I know everything?

I could pay someone to do it if I had money, that’s funny.

Experts can be a pain in the arse, someone told me to go somewhere and ask for Mr. Jarse, Hugh Jarse.

I can’t make my website, that’s what I’m saying.

Should I try praying?

Swearing at technology doesn’t make it work but it makes you feel better.

End of letter.

(I apologise for cursing and swearing.

It’s a substitute for caring.

Some man in India and many others have offered help, at a price.

If you want a thing done right do it yourself, that’s my advice.

Einstein’s brain has been preserved.

I am unnerved.)

Serious Matters

It would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.

Am I delirious?

Fake news and all that, is a dog a cat?

Fancy that.

The real thing is Spring, after Winter, you know the thing.

Can you trust anyone or anything at all?

Graffiti on a wall.

That’s not all.

I suppose you’ll have to trust yourself or me.

The truth will set you free.

Spirit Level

I’m just another spirit level trying to go straight.

Will I ever get it right, I can hardly wait.

Okay, my bubble moves around and up and down like mad.

Am I in captivity, should I be always sad?

Whoever is the carpenter, I am his trusty tool.

Must I always get it wrong, always play the fool?

I cannot argue with the facts, the line is straight or not.

Okay, I’ll say it one more time, I’ll give it all I’ve got.

New And Old

Be not afraid of the new, who was once new, you.

Do not grow old before your time, sense may be found in a rhyme.

The old has a lot to say for itself as well, Heaven is preferable to Hell.

Learn as you go along, sing a new and an old song.

When you stop learning you are dead, to quote a song, right said Fred.

All That Is

There’s far too much to know, how can I absorb it all?

In the grand scale of things I am very small.

I mean, where do I start, where do I end?

I ask myself, I am my best friend.

A little knowledge, so they say, is a dangerous thing.

Am I half way between a peasant and a king?

It appears almost pointless to learn any more.

Infinity is a long way off, show me to the door.

Quantum Computing

When it comes it comes, if it does.

Who will own it, the big boys because?

Will it serve a good use or let Hell loose?

Well both, I suppose.

Heaven only knows.

All that power, holy hour!

For good or bad or sane or mad.

The uranium atom is more or less the same.

To kill or cure, which is your game?

They are absolutely not the same.

Who to shame or blame?

In whose name?

Yours or mine?

May hearts entwine.

Life is a glass of wine.
