A Don't Know On The Go!

The cat found another one that needs a run. Actually Manzi said to give this one a go, so blame her for the below. No need to get jealous as can be as not going all Neko Random's sea.

A little don't know,
With this flow.
I don't know much,
And know a touch.

A little about a lot,
Can be hot to trot.
A lot about a little,
Won't make your brain brittle.

Is that how that goes?
Bah, who really knows.
Wait, I know who.
Adam knows at his zoo.

Which Adam though?
Beats me at my show.
There are many around.
Throw a penny an Adam can be found.

No pennies here.
A nickel I fear.
That may get expensive in the end.
So no money throwing trend.

Where was I?
Right, the Adam guy.
A little I don't know,
All wrapped in a bow.

Don't know him from Adam.
Even if it is a madam?
What happens if it is a her?
Does that make you or Adam purr?

Maybe then you don't want to know.
You just want to umm row?
Hey, it could be fun.
A rowboat out in the sun.

Can any Adam tell the don't know?
Maybe I should ask a crow?
That is a lot of pressure to put on everyone.
The Adam's must not find that fun.

At least they have one up on Jose,
As he can never play.
So do you know him from Adam today?
Did I get a no way Jose?

Know where the saying comes from? If you know an Adam does that make the saying dumb? Then you'd kinda be lying about the last part. Maybe Adams take the saying to heart. I'll go and ask the singing bass, but I don't expect him to be helpful to my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  6. What comes to mind is what you don't know can't hurt you which is mostly true. Sometimes, it is just best to act like you don't know. Then sometimes, you just don't know, you know ;=).

  9. Maybe because Adam was the first man
    that expression came to be?
    I know I have used it a few times
    At my sea.

  11. I always thought the Adam in question was the first man (according to the bible), Eve's mate.

  16. We know quite a few Adams, including the blog one. Also, our good friend's son is named Atom. Points for being unique, yes, but imagine how fun it is trying to explain that to strangers.

    1. haha yeah, unique is good
      until you have to spell it for everyone in every hood

  17. So, we don't know any Adams at the moment. That would be interesting to have the name Atom. Yikes.

  20. I don't know anyone named Adam.
    Not even one with a hat on.
    Gosh, where could they be?
    Obviously hiding from me.

  21. I know a few Adams. But heck if I know where the saying came from. Maybe our own blog friend Adam can fill us in. He's got a head full of knowledge about such things.

    1. To be honest, I've never heard the expression before. I guess most people try the whole "Where's Eve" line with me.

      I do wish my name wasn't almost synonymous with creation myth garbage.

    2. Guess he did not
      Lose 100 points from the jeopardy lot

      haha I guess they switch it for you

    1. Just not a popular name where you are

  29. Yes, the first Adam makes it make sense
    Otherwise, we'd all feel dense.
