Ignorance

Living is easy with eyes closed

Ignoring life’s problems posed,

Facts of life - often ugly and hard

Battled and scarred,

Don’t cease to exist if ignored-

Creates rhetoric that is flawed.

Ignorance a human weakness

Ignorance our deepest secret!

The most ignorant don’t know it

Won’t admit it - their mind unlit!

Inability to change their belief

Inability to question the reality

No wish to open their eyes

Cockiness their disguise!

Their ignorance, conscientious

stupidity, dangerous indifference ,

Makes life harder - no surprise -

For those living with fear in their eyes.

    Fear the mind killer, that every politician every person in power knows how to use to well, especially now.

    BRIAN HERE ~ Thanks for sharing (and scaring) SUE ! An elegant ODE in nine Rhyming Couplets ! COVID 19 is scary ~ but ~ if we ignore it & congregate ~ it ACCUMULATES ~ if we respect it and isolate ~ we will have it under control like FLU ! KIDS (as you know) expect answers *Uncle Brian can you make a pill to kill it ?* *Aunty Angela will exercise make us immune ?* I explain that Biochemists & Virologists are cooperating Worldwide to creat a VACCINE and Angela explains that Fitness & being less obese makes one less prone to disease. WE must all keep alert well into 2021 and support each other ! Please chesk our SYN-ACROSTIC ~ EXPECTATIONS ~ Thanks A & B !

    So many people seem to ignore the problems that are be fore them, once those problems are faced people can move on into a better life - its called experience.
