Scientific Waste

            We were of course not

            Attempting to educate,

            Do something to anyone,

            But to pique their curiosity

            So they would seek something

            From what swirled up just as

            I sought whatever it was

            They were doing and then

            (Boredom would come later),

            Do it myself.  Eliot

            Is another instance:

            Abandoning philosophy

            For poetry, or so he thought,

            And making the confusion

            Called his “Wasteland” which

            None of the highly educated

            Could understand – voicing one

            Interpretation after the other.

            Later Eliot said he was just

            Grousing at London and

            Didn’t mean any of those things.
