Leo’s Saw

….
A difficult subject
can be explained

to the slowest, witless,
dimwitted of man;

that is, so long as
he’s never pre-trained

in knowledge, idea,
therewith forehand.

~

But he, most intelligent,
knowledge ordained;

firmly persuaded,
and always demands;

he will not listen,
nor will he obtain

the simplest notion,
no matter how plain.
