The Answer Lies in a Good Question

                               by Jim Rapp
A wise teacher used to ask his students many questions,
believing they intuitively knew
the answers.

To teach bare facts without contextualization,
merely built a store of knowledge that he knew
would seldom frame an answer.

But questions asked of one – by one – in consternation
make him call to mind things he learned to do
when last he felt the pincer.

If one would know why he had suffered indigestion,
he need but ask the questions pointing to
the food dispenser.
