Val is a life-long practically oriented student of effective emotional and attitudinal responses to the many challenges of life.

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.

      Hence the expression, "pulling the wool over your eyes?"
