Ignorance is Bliss

Ignorance is Bliss

A Poem by J. B.

Ignorance is bliss.

or

The blissful practice ignorance.

I find accuracy in the second
         and only ignorance in the first. 

A statement of ignorance procured from the blissful ignorant.

Perhaps religious or political in origin?
                 Or is that ignorant of me to say?

I find no bliss in the assumption.

There is no bliss in ignorance which is how I feel you explained it , which makes me like the title even more. Its ironic. I like it.

They don't teach "awareness" In grade, middle, or high school. In most colleges lately it seems to be frowned upon. I "always" KNOW what is around me - both who and what AND of just WHERE I am.

I learned it as a kid... I've always appreciated my nightmares - they're all that's truly mine and they're even in color - who'ld a thunk.

Anyways, you've empowered me to think a bit AND remember a bit more ...while listening to these poems. I don't DO that - feeling empowered - anywhere near as much as I used to do.

Now as to THIS poem: using the same words to define, describe, depict, twist, and yes - to provide a bit of satirical rant... was fun for you. I appreciated the read.
