Better Off (Not Knowing)

The farmer’s crop depends
If his seasons hark.
The writer’s song descends
If his listener’s embark.

The doctor’s diagnosis cures
If her patients heal.
The caterer’s food endures
If her patrons appeal.

The actor’s stage prospers
If his audience applauds
The interpreter’s hands fosters
If his translation lauds.

The fisherman’s cast catches
If her school provides
The teacher’s lesson stretches
If her student verifies.

The investor’s chance succeeds
If his stocks soar
The contractor house achieves
If his homeowners adore.

Seek and ye shall frustrate
Knock and it will stay shut
Ask and it will be Indian Given
