Sir Smarty Fladoo

Have you ever heard of Sir Smarty Fladoo
The boy who thought lots and then said a lot too
The boy who said “life”. What is life? Am I dead?
The boy who said, world! Come and look what I’ve read!
I’ve read books about meaning! Of value and worth
By old men so old that they live in the earth!
I’ve thought the same thoughts, though. I think quite a lot
I think about knowing and know about thought”
And one day, Sir Smarty, he started to dig
A wide and deep hole that would someday grow big
He said, “I’ll go deeper! There’s knowledge down there!
There’s thoughts that need thinking!” he screamed to the air
And one day Miss Sally peered down in his hole
“Sir, where are you going and what is your goal?”
He said to Miss Sally, “Oh, Miss, can’t you tell?
I’m digging to deepness!” he started to yell
And Sally yelled back, “Sir, why dig so deep?
You’re much too far down, sir!” she started to weep
But Smarty kept digging ‘til one day he stopped
He found the world’s bottom, and then he just dropped
