Knowledge Fading

Learning that from which is taught,

expanding minds, from that which is sought,

teaching that from which they hope,

giving ignorance, desperately trying to cope,

wondering youths eager and caught, [5]

sitting patiently, never seeking to halt,

closing eyes and letting them sleep.

Losing interest, this illusion cannot keep

finding things to distract the mind

standing alone at the fountains side [10]

slipping suddenly so steadily steep

words wanting in wisdom weep

forgetful of them that sought to teach

ignorance in place much easier a reach.
