Knowledge by Committee
Any person worth their mettle
would not deign to ever settle
for any type of education
that offered no irradiation
of the true facts of subsistence,
even though at the insistence
of the elected powers that be
to hide the facts of history
and science and of common sense
in order to make kids more dense
to matters of ecology
and climate change and chemistry.
Minds should be buoyant and not settle
on myths of village or of shtetl
in place of those proven by science.
Minds can’t be shackled by compliance
to nonsense garnered from the dockets
of men who seek to line their pockets—
carpetbaggers and buffoons
who spout untruths and whistle tunes
taught to them by corporations
who feed them piecemeal their orations
that they’re doing for our good
those things in fact which place a hood
over our heads to hide the truth.
When government has grown uncouth,
what’s left except to rail and shout
that we must throw the traitors out!
