Because you admit you don't know
Doesn't mean you know anything
More than someone who thinks they know,
Even though you know they don't know
Anything at all. Not at all.
What dawns on you, slowly, slowly,
In your darkening theatre
Of mind is that your profession
Of ignorance itself presumed
Too much. You don't know you don't know,
And you won't know whether you did
Or didn't know ever, only,
Maybe, whether or not you felt
Like you knew that you didn't know
Or really did know after all.
