Thinking Is an Art: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


It is just a talent to be logical with ease

and not many are naturally endowed

to grasp reality to some it's breeze

and others shouldn't be allowed.

Daily news are showing those at work

messing up anything their brains touch

whether a moron or some first class jerk

their reasoning is not contributing much.

Many public figures should go for a test

to measure their ability to make a sense

leaving decisions to those who do it best

without that shallow posing and pretense.

It's possible to act as someone who knows

pulling leg of all those of the same brand

a well planted stupidity quickly grows

with no requirements to understand.

Much of our reality is but the result

of a brainless decision-making clown

even smart ones not worth their salt

playing along the only game in town.

Brain galleries shouldn't display anything cheap

but requirements to lead are not to be smart

anyone will do, even an arrogant creep

as voters forget that thinking is an art.
