Don’t Know Nothing
 
 
Don’t know nothing about global warming
Just know this crazy weather isn’t any fun
Just know the EF5 tornado in Joplin ruined
Thousands of lives and killed 161
 
Don’t know nothing about energy
Just know earthquakes and fouled water
From underground fracting
And high mercury levels from coal burning
 
Don’t know nothing about unregulated mining
Just know miners trapped and dying
And the Great Wall of China crumbling
 
Don’t know nothing about fixing food
Just know about contaminated food outbreaks,
Obesity and extra high pricing
 
Don’t know nothing about financing
Just pay my bills and there’s
Nothing left for savings
 
So just because I don’t know nothing
I will be voting

I don't think too many people actually "know" anything. Thank you for sharing your philosophical point of view, Elizabeth. Love and best wishes to you,

Loved your poem. The trouble is the truth about it is heartbreaking. I think of the next generation and it terrifies me.

Hahah! Gotta love it, Elizabeth. Those who profess to "know" have about ruined this country.

The difference between us and those that we are supposed to vote for is that they pretend to know when they need our votes and then pretend to ignore everything when we expect to see results! Just my personal reflection, Liz. By the way, this is a clever and wise piece of writing!

A poem of truth unfurled. Our forefathers [no women allowed] didn't trust the masses and invented representative democracy. I think, with the Internet, we are on the verge of a long-feared pure democracy.

I think it's far too many of our so called 'leaders' today who Don't Know Nothing about most of the things you talk about in your poem.

Superb!

As for voting, does it make any difference, whoever gets voted for is ruled by the polls and media. Oh yeah, and oil.

For someone who don't know nothing, I think you are a well informed person. I related to your poem big time; so glad you offered this succinct poem for us to view. I will be at the polls early to vote and hope and pray for better leadership from a man/woman who has their mind and heart on the pulse of the American public they will serve.

I think you know more than you are saying, and I'm voting too, I have a feeling my vote will cancel out yours.

Well-written poem. You gave and lot, but held back on purpose, and that made it as good poem.
