Ignorance

Ignorance

No question why you hate it.

At least your own opinion

of the divide you’re told is growing

at the speed of sound.

Word of mouth, after all

is what you blindly trust.

It’s how you rely on the weather nowadays.

No need to step outside…

and when you do

who can blame you for loving it

at the garage sale or the Goodwill store

when the treasure in your hand is just a dollar?

And would you care to put a price

on your restful nights

while your lover is away on business?

No telling from what it has saved you.
