    You are what you eat
    and what you take in.
    We’re what we see
    and become where we look.

    Wouldn’t it be neat
    to eat nothing, just reading,
    and see if we
    don’t shit a book?

      Fantastic. Way to incorporate both images in very clever prose.

    Knowledge allows us to see above and beyond the picture painted before us.
    Standing upon the learning of others takes us past the pictures we are handed.
    Looking on above the ignorance of the masses lets us see clearly what is before us.
    However, ignorance is bliss.

    A book is dampened by toilot water
    Some say it was discarded as trash
    But I believe it was something odder
    It read and ate up the book in a flash
