Say What?

Say What?

“And empty words are evil,” Odysseus to Agamemnon in Hades, Book XI, The Odyssey

They say Homer didn’t write the Odyssey
The dactyls, the plot, or the sirens’ song.
That idea doesn’t appeal to me.
Practically everything they say is wrong.

They say you can’t teach old dogs new tricks,
That years are short while days are long,
They say you can’t play cricket with a sticky wicket,
But practically everything they say is wrong.

They say you can trust conventional wisdom,
That Leos and Geminis don’t get along.
They say CEOs shun cannibalism,
But practically everything they say is wrong.
