Are We More Interested in the Biography?

Are we more interested in the biography,

The life, the history, the incidents than

The work?

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.
