“She Went Chipping Rocks with a Small Geological Hammer” | Highly Educated—M. A. Buxton (a Flat Earth Poem)

by | Jun 8, 2018



Who didn’t know chicken from turkey,

High Spanish and Greek

She could fluently speak.

But her knowledge of poultry was murky.


She could name the great-uncle of Moses,

The dates of the Wars of the Roses,

The reason of things.

Why the Indians wore rings

through their red aboriginal noses.


The meaning of Emerson’s “Brahma,”

Why Shakespeare was wrong in his grammar;

And she went chipping rocks

With a little black box.

And a small geological hammer.


She had views upon co-education.

And the principal needs of the Nation;

Her glasses were blue.

And the number she knew

Of the stars in each high constellation.


She expounded the use of bacilli.

And learnedly lectured on calci;

Her costume was mannish,

Her ways very clannish,

’Mongst the Cult and the ‘Varsity foci.


She wrote in a handwriting clerky.

And spoke with an emphasis jerky;

High German and Greek

She could fluently speak;

But—she didn’t know chicken from turkey.



“Highly Educated” (1893)

Miss Rivqah is born!

AND no, she wasn’t born standing up. That would be totally amazing if true. Rivqah is nearly 4 months old now, her birthdate being on July 7, and as you can see, she loves standing with assistance. Sarah and I are in our 40’s, have been married for over 20 years, and never thought we could have any more children. Rivqah decided to surprise us when we least expected it, and here she is, tada! all smiles. Yahuah is truly amazing. Expect plenty more of her in upcoming announcements. I may throw her in when you least suspect it. You can read her birth story here.

Miss Rivqah.

Rebecca L. Gould: A growing family at TUC!

IN my last newsletter I made mention of Rebecca L. Gould without ever giving a photo reveal. Well, here she is. The lovely Rebecca. Rebecca came to TUC during the summer of 2021 after following the breadcrumb trail from Rob Skiba and Nephelim research and soon thereafter began following the Torah. She has been an enormous help to the TUC ministry ever since that time, editing books for publication as well as running the podcast and administrating the TUC community, among other  tasks. ‘The Earth Not a Globe Review: Volume I’ and ‘The Legends of the Jews: Volumes I-IV’ would not have happened without her. 

New Article Archives

A GREAT deal many of my readers have been asking for a single page where my articles can be accessed and I don’t blame them. The sheer volume has become dizzying. Just know that the list provided here is far from complete, though I do say it’s a good start. It’s not that I’m holding anything back. I have been attempting to convert my catalogue of work into pdf files over the last so many months and that is no small easy task. The greater bulk is published all throughout my website. You’ll have to fish for them until I get around to it.
