What It’s Like When You Understand Ignorance

by Richard Haxton

Ignorance walks in mysterious ways
People as a species are ignorant
And being a person I’m ignorant
Ignorant of the nature and even the existence of my own ignorance
But that ignorance gives my insight
Into almost everything
About the nature of other people’s ignorance
And even though I understand their ignorance
Being ignorant myself I find it hard to forgive
But luckily I don’t have to forgive my own ignorance
Since I’m too ignorant to even know it’s there
And that’s what it’s like when you understand ignorance
