A Clear Misunderstanding...

Artwork by Catharina Reynolds

Those certainties you build on misconceptions
can not be certain once you see they are;
and, similarly, it's passing strange perceptions
that let you think there's logic in the far-
from-certain premiss you know what you doubt.
You ask are lies-to-children how we learn
and grin as if averse to finding out,
but I suspect you really hope to earn
degrees, if not from universities,
of sanity, but facts don't grow on trees.
