not that i really know

the brown bag prophet
said
i ain’t no
philosophy
barely finished
high school
but
i’ve been reading
different things
bout’
the critical spirit
how it can
hold back
religious enlightenment
you know
by asking
too many questions
trying to get to the bottom
of things
rather than
accepting the rituals
place before you
as
others have done
but
i was wondering
why anyone
would want to plant
a seed
that
cannot grow
