Plausibility Distortion

Any wish will warp the world.
How wisdom wounds us,
How knowing the truth

And accepting it
And stating it openly
Drops the portcullis

Between us and that meadow
Filled with flowers we can see
Out there, past the dungeon’s moat.
Only foolishness saves us

From immediate despair,
And the wisest among us
Are often the most feckless.
Wisdom’s fatal; fools can live.
