A List of Stupid Things We Do

Here is a list of stupid things we do, in habit without objection,
Happily recycling the actions of others without a blink or question.

We lose daylight and call it daylight savings time,
To extend the night during Winter's frigid grime.

We pay taxes to idiots in the bicameral buildings where our money is sent
Without letting us know how, why, or on what the loads of money is spent. 

We go to school for eighteen years absorbing useless and impractical facts,
And convince ourselves that after we're done we'll be able to clothe our backs. 

We stare at squares for extended hours to watch fictional scenes of life,
Relying on screens to learn how to live; just settle down and marry a wife!

We pick one person to supposedly lead a group of over three-hundred thousand people,
Like the way the catholics pick a pope to sit and declare god's word from inside a steeple.

There is a list of plants that cure many ailments, like ketamine, marijuana and ibogaine,
And we allow the idiots to hire thugs to arrest their users, and doctors to call them insane.

We scrub our teeth with flouride, which wears away the teeth,
And it causes dimentia in our pineal glands, taking memories like a theif.

This list is short for I would like my readers to add to this list of stupid stuff,
We do without thinking and stupidly, so we can say to them enough is enough.
