Circles by Carl Sandburg

The white man drew a small circle in the sand
and told the red man, “This is what the Indian
knows,” and drawing a big circle around the
small one, “This is what the white man knows.”
The Indian took the stick and swept an immense
ring around both circles: “This is where the
white man and the red man know nothing.”
