A Mind


I was sifting through old correspondence looking for one thing, and found these items from my days at West Junior High in Brockton, MA. The first was this badge that must have been for a prep rally before a sports event.

The second was this poem that I wrote, included in a collection that the school published for the 9th grade graduating class (June 1967).

What would you find inside a mind?
Some groups of facts of every kind;
A cluttered brain of useful things,
The something that to one will bring
To mind the data that was placed,
Inside the mind around some place;
But useless facts always remain,
For those we readily retain.
