Today's poem is by Louis McKee


Knowledge is power.
Bacon said it, meant

it was important
to know when to stoop,

and then which to pick.
Flower Power,

he might have said
were it a different

time, and had he seen
this wonderful yard

abloom with possibilities,
of two-plus-twos.

Once you know daisies
usually have an odd

number of petals, you can
get anyone to love you.
