“Two things are infinite – the Universe and human stupidity and I’m not sure about the Universe”
Can my poetry save the world?
Can it drag it back from the brink?
By using common sense and logic,
Encourage people to reason and think.
Stop reality being replaced
By what they try to make us believe;
Stop the dumbing down of a generation,
Now so gullible, so naïve.
Where facts with emotions
Get confused, not separated,
And with the most irrational of fears
Millions are daily indoctrinated.
Where critical thinking by rhetoric
Is being replaced,
Where clear thinking people
With so many challenges are faced,
Finding debate and discussion
Can no longer be used,
If the groupthink isn’t worshipped,
Then they will be abused.
Questions raised by enquiring minds
Can no longer be asked;
Teaching what to, not how to,
Educators now tasked.
Will reading my verse
Make people stop and reflect?
Refocus their minds,
Maybe make them suspect
That through their relentless propaganda
It’s a new world order they seek,
Forcing a dangerous ideology
Onto the uninformed and the weak.
