Much Too Overdone

If I submitted to a life of ignorance,
With a commitment to being dumbdowned...
There would be no difference,
To a life I wish to make.
And my being dumbdowned would not be noticed.
Or even the doing to fake it,
Be appreciated by those who would suspect...
My portrayal of ignorance,
Is too effective and much too overdone.

'Look.
Are you purposely trying to embarrass us?
No one here is that ignorant.
Not to get the attention you get.
Your ignorance is too excessive.
Chill out.
You threaten to end our funding.'

WHAT?

'Just fit in.
No one here thinks it is beneficial,
To act or appear as if they are intelligent.'

WHAT?

'Just fit in.
Chill out.'
Lawrence S. Pertillar
