The bar know it all

Frank E Gibbard

There seems to be one in every bar

Who claim to know so very much

Of this and that from near and far

A myriad of so called facts or such

The bar lawyer philosopher and

This unwanted general factotum

Who next to you will grandly stand

And excruciatingly quote them

Do not sit on that adjoining stool

It’s empty for a very good reason

But for the spirit of the last poor fool

Who chose that sad seat to ease on

Frank, you made me laugh with this poem and the last two lines.

"Words are not things, and yet they are not non-things either." - Ann Lauterbach
