I’m Educated — tell me what’s your name?
I’m Ignorance, but people call me Bliss.
Peculiar name — I s’pose it’s all the same
I’ve a proposal…what do you think of this:
the trouble is I’ve wanted to resign
exhausted Thought, watched perish many men
and if I dress you in my own design
I never have to take my post again.
Now try this coat, I hope it’s not to big
look there — they’ll hardly be able to tell!
but you better put on the old gray wig…
Ha! even if we swapped Heaven for Hell
they’d go on content — they’re truly your kin
who reach the skies just to fall to Earth again.
