Grate tinker

Hubbs 

Philosophising while sitting on the toilet deep in contempt of late, thinking about faeces
"I think, therefore I am not sure?"

As for your philosophy, I do not give it thought
What you study is a tort
Taught with much taut
Symposiums with all nations should be sought
True education is to question the teachings of the tutor
Closed learning is whit without universal exposure
Do not just except what is told with out questions
One without wit, is so blind to cerebral corrosions
If you are content on being sheep, it seems
At least count on your own dreams
In your 40 winks you are becoming blinkered
You would feel loss of fee if you knew the price is your brains being tinkered
