Some folks are wise and some are otherwise. I guess we know which one you are.


Blind I am to reason and truth,
I pretend that I know all,
I kick and punch and claw and bite,
And ignore reality’s call.

Deaf I am to screams of people,
And the rushing hours’ chimes,
I sit beside my broken life,
And quickly begin the pine.

Dumb I am to questions,
And to curious specters lots,
I simply sit with my back straight up,
And pretend to know not.

Blind I am to reason and truth,
I pretend that I know all,
Yet all my kicking and all my clawing,
Couldn't stop reality’s call.
