& your wise men don’t know

if there is any certainty

in an insecure world

it is that I know

I am indeed stupid

thick as the proverbial

immune to nuance

blind to asides

incapable of inference

snide to subtleties

slow to reference

just plain dumb

when it comes

to picking up clues

hints insinuations pointers

should you tip the wink

provide a whiff of inkling

a soupcon speck in suggestion

so say it plain please

if you want my company

& put my slow mind at ease
