Once It Is Acknowledged - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Once it is acknowledged,
Accepted to convince...
That a kept ignorance is expensive,
To deepen deficits of all kinds...
No one can ignore to pay for anymore,
Benefits begin to then discover open doors.
With the leaving behind,
The nonsense of petty arguments.
Some have found just as exciting,
As the uncovering the bones of dinosaurs.
To repeatedly go backwards,
For something 'new' to explore.

Once it is acknowledged like never before,
Closed minds will realize...
Not too many today will waste their time,
Explaining...
How to identify opportunities given to take,
Without anyone requesting experience to prove.
Or wish to hear complaints,
Of how difficult tasks are to learn to do.
To then demand the qualifications of the teacher,
Be revealed to all to have them approved.

Lessons to learn to then decide to teach,
Began with a student willing to listen.
Not one disrespecting and determined a sermon,
Should be given time to others to preach.
And 'this'...
Ultimately to understand to comprehend,
Awards with the receiving of benefits.
Once it is acknowledged,
That a kept ignorance is expensive.
To deepen mostly,
Mental deficits.
At a price no longer anyone can afford.
Especially one who teaches,
And decides to quit not to do it anymore.
