“Attention Deficient”

ignorance
cannot be bliss
or surely
she would be the most
joyous of folk
singing slow,
monosyllabic noises
while drooling contentedly
into her soup

yet I find, she is
angry, animated
over everything or nothing
inventing scenario
for purpose of displaying
a pre-designed reaction
excuse to be seen, heard

perhaps ignorance is anger
willingly partaking in
fictitious melodrama
to be observed as
the loudest voice
in any room

were she a child
she would be given pills
and a label
