Devoted To The Promotion Of It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is no better message to deliver,
Than silence...
To those who decide to remain blind,
With a preference to keep deluded.

Whose time is really wasted,
When debating the facts...
Over accepted fiction?
Especially when so many are devoted,
To the promotion of it.

Only fools choose to stay ignorant,
After being presented...
A variety of choices from which to make.
Then seek they do an attention to get,
When disappointment solicited comes to visit.

Keeping silent is the key,
For anyone who has discovered...
And wishes to keep,
A peace of mind found to come unexpectedly.

'You're awfully quiet over there.'

Ignore me.
I am practicing amnesia.
