THE PRICE OF LITERACY
“Ignorance is bliss”– the inge’nue’s famous last words–
Craftily dismissed as passe’: “–That’s only for the birds-”
The shrewd critic: lucrative is the assertive sophistry–
In a manipulative society, strike the right chemistry !
The poor naively believe that ignorance is not a curse;
Under the dispensation,their state can be lot more worse:
Knowledge be the privy of the Master–the sop’s the anodyne.
Status-Quo’s the holy-grail: ergo, stigmatizing the rebels is fine ..
