Don’t let anyone ever tell you
that I don’t know my ass
from my elbow.
My ass is located just above my legs
and right below my lower back,
while my elbow is located
halfway down my arm.
I don’t know much else,
but it’s a start,
and no matter how hard they try,
they’ll never be able to take that knowledge
away from me.
I also know shit from Shinola.
Shinola was a brand of shoe polish
previously manufactured in the United States.
The distinction is clear;
only one of them would be good
to apply to your shoes.
I never knew what this phrase meant
until I googled it.
But no matter how hard they try,
they’ll never be able to stop me from learning.
That is, unless they take away my computer.
