Only One Intelligent Way On Display!

Intelligence you humans seem to hold in high command. It is talked about across the land. From that Einstein fellow to an ape who can distinguish that a banana is yellow. So for the a to z today some intelligence will be at play.

Smart is smart.
Forget walmart.
They aren't smart.
They just push a cart.

Show a butt crack or two.
They have no clue.
Push and pull,
Of other things their full.

Smart is able to solve math,
Or go down a physics path.
Smart is making things go boom.
Smart is saving all from doom.

Intelligence is only high.
If your SAT reaches the sky.
You know nothing else at all.
So says the writing on the wall.

So you can unplug a loo.
So you can fix a car of two.
So you can find your way home,
When in the deep dark forest you roam.

None of that is intelligence at play. 
You can't talk on Twitter at your bay.
That is just soo wrong.
Go back and play Donkey Kong.

But if you can pump out pills,
Pretending to spot peoples ills,
Or be a blow hard and skirt the law,
Or even get elected by all who saw,

That is as smart as can be.
The only kind from sea to sea.
There is only one way.,
To be considered intelligent at ones bay.

If you hold a door,
Or complete a crummy chore,
Or move things about.
You are as smart as a trout.

It is just a given.
Your intelligence level you are livin.
But everything will be okay,
Intelligent people will see you through the day.

Pffft some people sure prove they aren't too wise with their I'm so intelligent cries. That stick up their ass must have took a brain cell killing pass. There are many kinds of intelligence at play and without each one many would drown in the bay. Think there is just one intelligence class? Sorry NSA, you weren't being talked about by my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  8. When I got my first story published in a magazine, my ex-husband's mom said, "Wow. She's so SMART." I thought that was the oddest thing ever because to me, creative has never equaled smart. I was always taught that smart involved being good at math or knowing historical facts off the top of your head. It's still separate to me, even though it probably shouldn't be. We're all smart in our own unique ways.

  11. I once had a boss
    With a face like a hoss
    Who would, like, totally brag all day
    About the braininess at her family's bay.
    She once asked me "What do you think of that, dearie?'
    My answer left her smile a bit smeary...
    "If you, to total strangers, have to chatter,
    You don't have the kind of smarts that matter."
    Was it bad of me
    To be, with my words, so free?

    Just take a look at what each has the potential to bring

  34. Intelligence is a 'relative' thing
    Einstein used that word in everything.
    The ape knew like very fine fellow
    That a banana is curved and is always yellow
    Not sure whether Einstein was that clever
    For he'd be dating the colour for ever.
    Depending on whether the fruit's red shift
    would make it look blue as it's speed did lift
    The ape would have none of that silly talk
    He'd unzip his banana and strut around with a walk
    And shove it all in his gob at once down it's length
    While Einstein would work from the top to save strength.
    Whilst he was debating E = Mc squared
    The monkey would fart ~ unlimited energy flared.

      The ape gets what he likes

  50. This was so much fun to read, Pat! And so true. Our society now values such a narrow range of intelligence. And it's so arrogant about it. It devalues so many people and their amazing gifts. Each of us has unique intelligences and abilities. I really think Howard Gardner was spot on with his theory of multiple intelligences. We are each somewhere on the continuum of each type of intelligence, stronger or weaker. Knowing our strengths and weaknesses can help us grow and improve. Intelligence is not static. In 1999 Gardner added another type of intelligence to his framework: naturalistic intelligence. I can't tell you the joy I felt, when I found myself reading and recognizing my strongest type of intelligence. Have a good one!
