Funny Bliss (Written in 1998)

      Twain is a funny guy.

He was frustrated, at fourteen, with his father’s ignorance.

At twenty, how dumb struck he felt

That his father could be such a quick learner.

I was thirteen and I wrote:

What do I know?”

My old French teacher loved it.

He said the French essayist Montaigne used it.

At fifty, I said:

“I feel I know nothing”.

My thirteen year old niece skewered her eyes and mumbled:

I am embarrassed, what a loser!”
