To Those Who Fill Our Textbooks

The promising dead ends of the world
that popular great thinkers pave
are lined with thickets of leafy trees
promising majestic views;
each strong trunk suggests a climb
though the girth thins as we go higher,
till weary, we near the tips of twigs
pointing everywhere at space.
