Tough girl

One source of bad information!

There’s a boy in you about three years old who hasn’t learned a thing for thirty
thousand years.

Sometimes it’s a girl.
This child had to make up its mind how to save you from death.

He said things like:
“Stay home. Avoid elevators. Eat only elk.”
You live with this child, but you don’t know it.
You’re in the office, yes, but live with this boy
At night. He’s uninformed, but he does want
To save your life. And he has. Because of this boy
You survived a lot. He’s got six big ideas.
Five don’t work. Right now he’s repeating them to you.
