Use your Wernicke’s area if not the shoulders…
Why are so many youngsters…
obsessed with height?
or other physical might?
Attracting stares like magnets
Can they ever match the sublime Everest?
Quantifying brilliance with numbers
Can their numbers ever match Euler’s?
Why not listen to Newton…
to climb the ladder?
onto a giant’s shoulder?
No one cares after thirty years old
Can we stop setting records of new lows?
These are the things that truly matter
Can we finally achieve eudaimonia…together?
