An Essay on Knowledge

The key to the universe contained in the mind
Is not wanted by all, but only one kind.
Ignorance is bliss, and this is true,
With little happiness for those of a brighter hue.
But not all can be blissful, happy, naïve –
Heck, just look at my friend, Steve!
Knowledge brings pain, reluctance, and jade
While naivete struggles and happiness fades,
But there must be those to guide the lands,
To lead the people and hold their hands.

I hate writing just to rhyme. I like my "brighter hue" thing, though; I thought that was neat. :P I like the word "hue." It's useful.
