I Always Thought They Knew

Post by bags123 » Fri Apr 27, 2012 9:44 am

I Always Thought They Knew

I always thought they knew because
they sounded pretty smart
Compared to many others
educated at Walmart
But lately I'm resigned to think
their wisdom's just a fart
That's passed on from a rich man's world,
while this one's torn apart.

They said they understood how many
people were in pain
With nothing left to hope for, and
with nothing left to gain.
But lately I'm resigned to think
they too must be to blame
Perhaps their best solution
is to not have to explain
I prefer to keep an open mind,....but not so much that my brains fall out.- Carl Sagan

Too true! too true!

I also believe that higher education does not guarantee common sense...just look at me!
