ASKED IN INNOCENCE
Why is the sky blue?
Why do cows give white milk
When everything they eat is green or brown?
Why does wood float and rocks sink,
And people do both?
Why are people white, black, red, or yellow?
Must she grow old and die?
Why can't she find the end of the rainbow?
Where do babies come from?
Why is there war?
Childish questions asked in innocence
And with a sense of wonder.
Pose the most difficult answering problems.
But he should know;
He's a former child himself.
