The Type of Curiosity That Killed The Cat

Cat

It wasn’t mere curiosity that killed the cat

No matter how many people you’ve heard constantly quote that.

We’re told curiosity is good, the key,

I’m sure you must see

To the world of knowledge & facts,

Not to mention unleashing inner wisdom, to be tact

So why would it kill the cat?

Well.

Curiosity just for curiosity’s sake

Could more than you think be put on stake.

For example,

Do you want to study because you want to know the world

Or do you want to study so they’d call you a man who’s learned?

And do you want to know the world because you want to know God

Or do you want to know the world to be reason they are awed?

Curiosity killed the cat, they say

But I say curiosity without noble purpose ended its day.

For example,

Do you want to learn the secrets of her heart

Because of her life you wish to be a part

Or are you curious just to see

What’s really going on in her mind internally

With no intention of putting that knowledge to use

But simply to entertain your boredom, a temporary muse…

Oh,

My friend.

This could be the end.

Know that the type of curiosity that killed the cat

Was the kind that had no means but itself

And that

.

is the end

.

of that.
