Ignorance Is Bliss

To the horror of the print media people, it has emerged that few people today actually read a newspaper. Young people today are especially confident in their ability to function while completely ignorant of all about them. I spoke to a young woman today, and she seemed quite assured that she knew all there was to know about everything she needed to make her life happy and complete.


I never watch the news or read the papers

She smiled and shook her radiant blonde hair

It’s just a constant stream of crime and rapers

It got so that I just no longer care

I have my friends on Facebook who inform me

Of things that will not complicate my life

Like whose relationships are hot and stormy

And which of my old friends has left his wife

I have no time for politics or world news

That stuff is boring and is quite old hat

I have a friend who’s up to date on world views

But he became a bore and that was that

I know there’s an election in November

Although I’m not so sure about the date

They had one long ago if I remember

But boring stuff like that does not relate

I think I heard a war somewhere or other

Is ending soon but maybe I misheard

I have a friend who got it from her brother

We aren’t sure of that but that’s the word

A friend said polls say Romney’s badly losing

I don’t know who he is but that’s a shame

I don’t know why they want us to be choosing

I’m sure they’re both fine men, it’s just a game

It doesn’t matter who wins the election

My life won’t change and that is why I say

I don’t think I’ll be making a selection

It’s boring and I must be on my way

I watched her walk away her fine hips swinging

I watched the sunlight sparkle on her hair

Her lips moved and I knew that she was singing

A lovely girl, and one without a care

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    I believe engineering just causes it to be worse. Now there is a channel to never ever treatment, now there will not become a prospect for them to find out.

    In between me and my husband we have owned extra MP3 gamers through the years than I can count, like Sansas, iRivers, iPods (basic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few a long time I’ve settled down to one line of players.
