I Know

I know that some people will want to hear the things that I have to say and some will not.

I also know that not everybody will regard my opinions as important information.


I know that you speak in ignorance because you lack wisdom and accurate knowledge.

Moreover, I know that you like to support things that you do not know their origins or roots.


I know that they have been teaching you falsehood since the days of your childhood.

And I know that you prefer fantasy to reality because that is what you mostly know.


They taught you about three little pigs that built houses and a cow that jumped over the moon.

It is sad that you obviously like to hear and read about these foolish and impossible things.


I know that many people think they know right and wrong because they are adults,

But we live in a debased world that deliberately makes right appear to be wrong and vice versa.


I know that some of you attended colleges and universities, and so you think you are wise.

And I know that you can acquire knowledge from education, but education does not teach wisdom.


I know that you highly regard diplomas and certificates, but I regard these things as used toilet tissue.

I also know that knowledge can be true or false and it can be useful and beneficial or useless.


I know that only the people whom “the cap fits” will be upset when they read this composition.

Moreover, I know that bold and forceful speakers of facts do not have many friends.


I know that many people agree with military action because they have no regard for human life.

And I know that those who support abortion do not think they are murderers, but they are.


I know hypocrites and pretenders when I see them; such ones are conspicuous by their dishonesty.

I also know that some people are stupid enough to think my poetry is personally attacking them.

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
