“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” (from “Strength to Love” by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1929-1968, American Baptist minister, Civil Rights leader, Nobel Peace Prize recipient)
Idiocy, oh Idiocy, so many folks long to be like thee.
How sad it is for one to see people worshipping idiocy,
Idiocy combined with a penchant to be evil
And having the power to cause an apocalyptic upheaval.
How frightening to see people remain
Dedicated to keeping idiocy at the reign
Of a country that declares it is always inclined
To keep the rights of all its citizens foremost in mind.
Idiocy has as its central aim
To find others that it can blame
For idiocy’s frequent outlandish acts
That cannot be supported with valid facts.
It certainly would be grand
If masses of people against idiocy took a stand
And gave the world a glimmer of hope
That with idiocy it would no longer have to cope.
