Poetry – Naïve

Naïve

I’ve always been naïve.

It’s my greatest attribute.

Innocent and idealistic –

According to repute.

But I possess inbuilt cynicism

That I bring to bear.

It constrains my natural idealism

And makes me more aware.

Opher – 7.11.2020

My anger at what is happening around me, the wanton destruction, the control and manipulation, the propaganda and lies, the pillaging of nature, is underpinned by the vestiges of optimism.

Surely people care enough about nature to want to protect it?

Surely people aren’t stupid enough to allow conmen and media lies to dictate their views?

My hope lies in education – good education that enables individuals to discern and think.

  1. “. . . good education that enables individuals to discern and think.”

    Now THERE is a concept Tubularsock has yet to see in any educational system to date!

    Control and lock-step is the order of the day!

    Now Opher, go BUY something made of plastic!

I'd like to hear from you...
