Ignorance is Bliss

by Don Baham on March 21, 2017

I never thought that

that saying would have

any value in my lifetime


However, lately I think

more and more about

the relief that that

saying gives when

I think of where

Trump and The Deep State

has taken me

and is presently

taking me

and humankind


I’m thinking that

the occasional

amnesiastic moment

when I am not dwelling on

Trump and The Deep State

are an example of

Ignorance is Bliss


And I fear that

without those moments

I might lose it


The recent denial

by Trump of visas

to African Government

representatives invited

to a discussion of Africa

challenges my very sanity

and reminds me that

sometimes

Ignorance is Bliss
