Knowing is not enough.
All that's on the surface
is almost superficial.
It's kind of like fluff,
soft, but with no substance
in the middle.
Going deeper inside,
exposes all the layers.
It's where all the
secret parts reside.
Taking on a life of their own,
fully erect, but remaining hidden.
Until something triggers them,
then they become fully blown.
But taken out of context they lose
most of their meaning.
And they desperately want to
be understood!
So one must delve in
so much deeper.
You got to open up the hood,
to get at the components.
See the mechanics in the making!
It's not just the structure,
or the frame.
Look at what you're really undertaking!
Because the metallic finish
can easily get scratched away.
All that's on the surface
is but a mere display!
