In darkness, the mind comes short
Gullible to any item offered, and
Not an excuse for self underdevelopment
Obnoxious in the gathering of knowledge
Rationality greatly fractured and invalid
And then lost in the puzzle of understanding
Never near a sound judgment, because it
Cannot sieve random information which
Ends with a sense of powerlessness

    See, now this is brilliant and concise, accessible and hilarious, yet edgy. You could deliver this as something close to stand-up comedy, where we all get to laugh at our collective habits of ignorance. So, now, what do you have for WISDOM?

    "Gullible to any item offered" - the idea that things give themselves to perception, which is then made coherent by reason is very Kantian. Somehow I have a feeling that I will enjoy every poem of yours :P

    I enjoyed your clever acrostic (which is becoming your favourite form). // 7 // Julia, xx
