Are we more interested in the biography,
The life, the history, the incidents than
Are we so curious yellow and National
Inquirish? Apparently, we want to know
About but not know.
We say we want to know. They say
Knowledge is Power; a high school
Has it as its motto,
But the fiftieth reunion revealed
That fifty years later the graduates
Don’t want to know,
In fact, they don’t even want to know
About – you. They just want to tell
You about themselves.
So, the reunion was about chatter
Bouncing off of the walls and not
At all about knowing
Or even the lesser — knowing about.
And so much for the wisdom that
comes with age.
