His Smartness, Liberali Maximallus (a poem)

Stop the presses; hold them calls!

The latest thing in a philosopher king

Is some Hollywood blonde.

Can't get enough of the stuff!

Give me a by-line writes the headline

With the story at the mercy ...

Hedge it with some edge to it

Looking to get away with it,

And I'm loving it.

Science by consensus

With a side of intelligence;

Dinner at eleven.

They elevate ignorance,

Render intelligence irrelevant,

Hopes to make me feel

The way I think is real ...

The mags, the papers and TV

Playing funny with the country.
