Ignorance is Currency

Jefferson Memorial
Ignorance is currency
Its spread is broad and deep

Numbing the pain of wakefulness
Into a walking sleep

The circulation quickens.
Unhinged doors swing free
Expecting that which never was
And what will never be

Ignorance and freedom
by natural decree
may occupy an orchard
but not a healthy tree
