Post subject:  Books!

Up! up! my Friend, and quit your books;

Or surely you'll grow double:

Up! up! my friend, and clear your looks,

Why all this toil and trouble?

Books! 'tis a dull and endless strife

Ignore the Monte Carlo

How gross his music! On my life

There's none of wisdom in it

And hark! how crude the Alfie sings!

She too, is a mean preacher:

Come forth into the light of things,

Don't let random be your teacher.

Sour is the lore which tensor brings;

Her mindless intellect

Misshapes the beauteous swim of things:

She murders to dissect.

Enough of brute-force art

Close up those barren dirges

Come forth, and bring with you a heart

That swims in mental images.
