The cookie poem

I have decided
that instead of wasting my time
writing down thoughts about other people's thoughts
just so that someday
someone like me
might have to waste their time
writing about my thoughts--
instead of this
I think it would be good if I learned to make chocolate chip cookies.
After all, what use is wisdom
if it creates nothing real?
And what is more worth creating
than a chocolate chip cookie?
