How It's All A Little Silly But Important

Being interested in poetry is like being
interested in show cattle.
Being interested in show cattle is like being
interested in birds. People,
it's all the same bag that we pick from.
I know of people who believe in ideas
of supremacy.
But I love show cattle without knowing
anything about them.
I had a student who wrote a paper
about them once and it was great. I gave
her an A.
Poetry is a sort of 4-H.
Do you have interests? It's likely
they're a sort of 4-H too.
