Do not forsake me with your
Intelligence so far away
You leave me bewildered as a wizard
Would have done.  You make life easy
For some, but not for me
Your magic powers are so intimidating
I am but a fawn still
Drinking its mother’s milk
You are a kindly beast
Gloating in your selfishness
Yet I bow to your nobility
Respect your esteemed intellect
Marvel at your accomplishments
But, please simplify them for me, for
My life only goes one step at a time
