Said Conrad Cornelius O’Donell O’Dell
(My very young friend who is learning to spell)
The A is for ape, the B is for bear,
The C is for camel, the H is for hare
The M is for mouse, the R is for rat
I know all 26 letters like that

Now I know everything anyone knows
From beginning to end, from the start to the close

Then he almost fell flat on his face on the floor
When I picked up the chalk and drew one letter more
A letter he had never dreamed of before

And I said ‘You can stop if you want with the Z
Most people stop with the Z, but not me
In the places I go there are things that I see
That I never can spell if I stop with a Z

I’m telling you this ‘cos you’re one of my friends
My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends!

— Dr. Seuss

[Religion says that it’s teachers, and a book, are all there is:
“Now I know everything anyone knows
From beginning to end, from the start to the close”
Living by the Spirit says God is so much bigger than that,
and that “My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends!” — df]
