Opossum?

Did you know that a Possum in America is spelt with a silent "O",

Deriving from the word "Apousum" meaning white beast?

Now you might say to me "I don't care, these facts do not interest me in the least"

And that is okay,

But for me finding out a Possum and an Opossum are two different animals although pronounced the same, reminds me that there is so much in this world that I do not know

It re-ignites my hunger for knowledge

That childlike enthusiasm for learning

That often gets quenched by finding out things we don't want to know
