A world without curiosity
Begs no question “why?”, nor
Can you tell me what, when?
Do you know how?
Everything would be purposeful, built
For only need and must.
Going to and from places
Hold no explorational pleasure.
If a star turned supernova
Just right before our eyes,
Knowledge about it won’t be sought for.
Landing on the Moon would never occur.
Moon phases not studied.
Nor any record of planets or moons
Out past ours.
People would study for need not regard
Questions would not be asked,
Regard disregarded and
So many things would be unknown.
The sky and beyond would be
Variety would be limited.
Would half the things invented be here?
Xeroxing no holiday photos
Yellow Suns untouched by camera
Zero curiosity leaves a world unknown.
