All-Knowing Ignoramuses: A Poem
Gourmet dinner and hamburger both a food
and same applies in how we stuff our minds
reminding of all-knowing but ignorant dude
picking from magazines "food" of every kind.
To satiate brain's need for some information
metaphoric hamburgers can make us feel full
and then they present our intellectual creation
perhaps adding fries to graduate in that school.
Those who don't know and are refusing to admit
buy from culture's flee market that cheap stock
with their readers all being intellectually unfit
but ready to lecture, criticize and mock.
Preparing a gourmet dinner in our mental pot
is an art of processing and careful spicing
not dumping together as we were taught
with only some slicing and dicing.
It takes some improvisation for proper use of head
with an open mind allowing some innovative ways
but ignoramuses just care for "mental daily bread"
with knowing-it-all recipes spiced with some craze.
