Four Stanzas:

If you don’t know appropriations,
Then you don’t know origins.

If you don’t know conflations,
Then you don’t know general subjects.

If you don’t know abstractions,
Then you don’t know meanings & definitions.

If you don’t know systemizations,
Then you don’t know structure & the path.
