The Benefits of IgnoranceYou can read another of Sirowitz's poems, "Misery Loves Company" at The Writer's Almanac.
If ignorance is bliss, Father said,
shouldn't you be looking blissful?
You should check to see if you have
the right kind of ignorance. If you're
not getting the benefits that most people
get from acting stupid, then you should
go back to what you always were—
being too smart for your own good.

Tricia, at the Miss Rumphius Effect, is hosting the Poetry Friday Round-Up this week.
Have a relaxing long weekend everyone!
