Poem from Inmate, Earth

… one of 18 ebooks in The ‘I’ Series – flash fiction (horror, sci fi, crime, romance & twist in the tale), poetry and short essays from politics to the paranormal.


What is that? I want to know,
I’ve got to go where knowledge goes;

I am curious, always am,
Are things laid down as a plan?
I need to find out what it’s all about,
I cannot stand that thing called doubt;
I’m not alone, there’s so many like this,
Learning things can be such bliss;
It drove that caveman out of skins,
Insatiable appetite to know more things;
It drove explorers to horizons new,
Banishing myth for things that are true;
It drove philosophers to think it out,
And then ‘Eureka’ they would shout;
It drove the scientist to delve into all,
Banish the idea that we are small;
Knowledge is simply what we do,
Improving things for me and you;
We’re Homo Curious. What’s new?
