Non Curious People – Written March 2016 (Aged 41)

Non Curious People

it’s not that i think i am right
i don’t know,
i just despair at the prejudice
and the ignorance
the sort –
that seem to dominate our existence
people scared to look
or investigate further
or even think beyond their fear
however prejudice does not deter them
or make things less clear
it creates a distorted world view
it assigns borders
and puts up a national fence
it is funny how all this bigotry
causes to me, such offence
the non curious people
in our society, appear to be such an expense

James Garratt – March 2016
