In Defense of Intellectual Labor | A Poem by Daniel Klawitter

It begins innocently enough
With a wondering.
With a however hung
On a what if.

With a maybe
Married to a possibility
Not yet exposed
Or explored.

Sure, there are answers—
Some of them are even
Convincing.

What is deplorable
Is thinking the obvious
Is obvious
Just for existing.

It requires
Some agility—
Some frisky flexibility
To not become distressed

When provoked
By a question
That turns into a quest.
