Ignorance-Proud People


Ignorance-proud people
Ignorantly re-creating history
To suit our own ignorance

Ignorance-proud people
In blissful ignorance
Of our ignorance

Ignorance-proud people
No imagination
For the future
Ignorance-proud people
Letting other people
Form our ignorance

Ignorance-proud people
Repeating for ourselves
Other people’s ignorance

Ignorance-proud people
Not knowing
That we don’t know

Originally published in 1995 as part of an anthology of poetry & prose.
