The Malady of the Learnéd

Seldom are we blessed with time
In which we may think
What we like, say what we think.

Apologies, Tacitus.
Seldom are we blessed with thoughts
We like, worth saying
To others. Seldom are we

Blessed with freedom from others
Who are not ignoring us.
Seldom are our thoughts the best.
Seldom are the learnéd blessed.
