[ NaPo 2017 ] Your Own Private Hercules

 

When it comes to fresh knowledge  
you're tapped out  
 
not from bailing on college  
because you were a  
high school drop-out  
 
but because you built a dam  
walling yourself off from the wishing well  
gave up on your dreams  
 
I could lead you as if a horse to water  
but you probably wouldn't drink it  
 
I'd rather bring the water to you  
like Hercules did when he  
flooded the Augean Stables  
 
and if you still didn't drink  
in the very least  
we will have gotten  
most of your horseshit excuses  
out of the way
