The Land of Ignorant

In the Land of Ignorant
where Greed is the night ruler,
nothing grows but stupidity.

In the Land of Ignorant
we don’t taste bread
while others see just death.

In the Lands of Ignorant
we must not read
nor worry about the screams.

In the Land of Ignorant
we should just pray
because God is the only way.

In the Land of Ignorant
we are forced to trust
and not to ask.

In the Land of Ignorant
we don’t seem to host the same site
even if we walk the same side.

In the Land of Ignorant
we all are deaf and blind.
