DINOSAURS OF IGNORANCE


In the world what a sorry
Spectacle do we find!
Dinosaurs of ignorance
Lurk in the human mind.

Those who ought to know better
Take a vicious pleasure
In treating their ignorance
As a precious treasure.

Tell them about their follies
And pat comes the reply:
“Why should we change our beliefs?
There is no reason, why.”

Can one argue with those who
Do not value logic?
For such worthies the act of
Learning is too tragic.

O my dear teacher, preacher,
Trainer of the mankind;
Lose not heart, remember that
Some men are slow and blind.
