old man 2

searching for why

i came upon when,

what, and where,

but nobody could

explain the why

question mark

looking deep into

higher knowledge,

i sampled wicca

studied the vedas

sacred geometry

and freemasonry


learned kabbalah

read the holy bible

book of the dead

the way of the tao

quantum physics

and cosmology

exclamation point

my efforts were

not completely

without reward

as i did uncover

an absolute truth:

no man, now or

ever, knows why
