Could you kindly prescribe me…

Could you kindly prescribe me a med, One more powerful even than senility, So that I might entirely forget That fake tsardom with tales of futurity, And forget what I’ve read in news media, And with whom had discussions at length, What can happen for real in this life, my dear, And what can't ever happen till death, So my world shrinks, all right,to my nearest And my dearest, and to what is at hand: While much knowledge is just as much risk, yes, Little knowledge is peace without end. Sergey Kutanin, 2016 Translated from the Russian by Philip Nikolayev
