Extra Effort | A Poem by Guy Farmer

Unending flow of information –
Hyper-stimulation.
Neurons firing chaotically,
Entertainment blather,
The superficial supersedes.

Like the easy stuff,
Eschew deeper meaning
Requiring extra effort –
Critical thinking,
Reflection.

The odd child,
It languishes alone,
Brushed aside, unstudied,
Ignored, but no less
Important, valuable.
