The Wise Man of Semabok, Part 2

THE Wise Man of Semabok, Part 2

II

AAAARRRRRRRGH!” he one day screamed,
... When the pressures of schoolwork sank into him.
“Can’t studying be easier than this?” Johan kept
on asking,
“Isn’t there a secret formula for learning and memorizing?”

And that day Johan buried his face in a mountain
of books,
Like a poor little kitten drowning in a brook,
And he yelled and screamed at the thought of failing,
Until late at night he kept on wailing.

That night Johan slept amongst his books,
Indeed that night he dreamed he was standing
by a brook,
And he was staring at the rushing waters,
“Will I leave this question unanswered?” he wondered.

And Johan kept on wondering and wondering,
When the answer will be arriving.
Not to mention why he was there standing,
Looking at the water fast running.
