Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
Dumbing Down Century
Perfect pout and pristine pearly white veneers,
plumped lips painted with iridescent ruby
juice, her medication’s taken capsulised
in luscious (chemical) lemon flavour.
Kept tranquillised and dumbed down daily, her
development is arrested, she is
lacking a proper education. Licked
into shape, stuffed with useless knowledge which
she must regurgitate on the command
in the exam room (aka factory for failures).
The media and government spoon feeds sweet
snippets of only what she needs to know,
(lies or truth, who cares?). They will preach, harangue,
sermonise; indoctrinate and moralise;
anaesthetise her imagination
paralyse her inborn creativity.
