Oh to be an idiot
That would be rather good
I’d like to not know anything
And not know that I should

To be ignorant of my ignorance
To be unaware I’m thick
To have the intellectual capacity
Of a fairly stupid brick

I wish I was dim-witted
That I understood much less
Were I more simple-minded
It would cause me no distress

For knowledge isn’t power
Wisdom is not a helpful trait
And life is rather scary
When you understand your fate

So I would be much happier
Indeed I’d be delighted
If I could spend my whole life
Blissfully benighted
