Not Guilty For Greenwolfe - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Are ignorance and innocence
but two sides of one argument,
If I should sin without intent.
What need have I for penitence?
If sin’s an alien concept
something that is not known to me.
Your point of view that I’m guilty
I see no reason to accept.
If I do what comes naturally.
Obeying Mother Nature’s laws
and I indulge in intercourse.
What blame can then attach to me.
They say that ignorance is bliss
I cannot disagree with this

    Aww good read Ivor! ! Ignorance is bliss its true but that saying has a flaw
    For ignorance is no excuse (to the courts) , if you break the law *10*! !
    Best regards, Friend Thad

    Ignorance of the law doesnt excuse no one...they say it is a sin and dont have a bail for it. But innocence is a child like virtue and has dignity and purity for things...Great difference has it! ! !

    Very well put chocy chops! lol No! ignorance is allegedly thought of as bliss by thinking people because thick people don't often think and thinking folk often think too much and give themselves brain burnout and become thicker than is imaginable by any creative means to affect a change, so my advice is keep writing and educating us all. Smiling at you, trying to think! damned....Tai lol Very to the point piece, well put. (Report) Reply
