With A Conscious Ignorance - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

As the Earth does its slow spin,
To then orbit on a fixed course...
Around a vast and gaseous Sun,
Taken for granted by everyone.
There has yet been a scientist declared,
To be an expert in the field of 'Uncertainty'.
With documentation that reveals,
When this 'mysteriousness' began to begin.
That brings relief to beliefs to its inhabitants...
Along for the ride.
Whether residing in the East or the West,
The effect of the Sun rising to set...
Remains an effect accepted.

Not too many come to express an appreciation,
Each day for this blessing they get.
Too many have taken limitations to define,
That which has been taught to confine...
A probing of values and standards of others,
To compare and evaluate with time to undermine.

Too many have taken their blessings to minimize,
Prioritized quick to live lives...
As a means to sustain conflicts and pain.
With produced campaigns to obtain power to rule.
To do to diminish truth to reduce.
As if this Earth giving birth to all inhabiting it,
Has annointed a few chosen to pursue...
A doing as they choose.
With a conscious ignorance to abuse,
Those who refuse their darkened mentalities.

An ignorance distanced from awareness gets,
A destruction of self-importance...
Speeding fast towards irreversible regret.
And yet...
Whether in the East or in the West,
The Sun rises to set...
This process unchanged will remain the same,
Regardless if observed by anyone...
Left convinced they had been victorious.

As the Earth does its slow spin,
To then orbit on a fixed course...
Around a vast and gaseous Sun,
Taken for granted by everyone.
The process will still be done...
Even after the fumes,
Of ignorance clears the atmosphere.
