Age-old debate

when the old man said
I know everything
The young girl replied
What is everything

When the old man said
Wisdom is mine
The young girl replied
What is wisdom

When the old man said
I am privy to all life’s secrets
The young girl replied
What is privy

When the old man said
You don’t know anything
The young girl replied
What has a bald head
A tight mouth
And dribbles when it eats

When the old man said
Respect your elders
The young girl replied
I will when i’m older
