Opinions are like rectums, everyone
Has one. Sadly, blockheads have them also.
It’s what comes out: profundity or thrummed
Beliefs that make all the difference. Know
The truth and what’s not before you accept
A single one. Beware of those whose thoughts
are seeded in superstition and kept
Alive as “old wives’ tales” falsely taught
As truth; it’s damn ignorance is what it is!
So eschew these cockeyed philosophies
Beware of the false Sayers chorus
Who opine their contrived absurdities.
They may control the sought-after places
But not Truth when we get down to cases.
