A Fine Disregard for Awkward Facts



Another for Napowrimo ~ this one to the Day 4 prompt, in honour of Scottish science fiction writer Iain M. Banks … irresistible …

A Fine Disregard for Awkward Facts

He has a true dislike
of anything uncomfortable;
will go to any length
to avoid,
to hide,
to circumnavigate the prickly
pear of confrontation.

When it comes to facts,
indisputable facts
that he dislikes,
he manages to ignore them completely,
There are none so blind
as those who will not see.
