Choosing To Be Fooled

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Crazed are these days.
And everybody prays they'll go away.
But when they came and visited,
Few among them resisted.

Crazed are these days.
And everybody prays they'll go away.
But when they came and visited,
Few among them resisted.

And sitting idle while they arrived,
Were people in denial.
Criticizing those who said...
'Be prepared for the days ahead.
Ignore the facts!
But try to get them off your back.
Ignore the facts!
And you'll lay awake in bed instead.'

Deluded are the people...
Choosing to be fooled.

Crazed are these days.
And everybody prays they'll go away.
But when they came and visited,
Few among them resisted.

Crazed are these days.
That everybody prays will go away,
With ignoring of facts.
Trying to get them off their backs fast.

Deluded are the people...
Choosing to be fooled.
With a wish,
To be fools.

Dumbed-down.
Dumbee doo dumbee doo bee doo.
Dumbed-down.
Dumbee doo dumbee doo bee doo.
Dumbed-down.
Dumbee doo dumbee doo bee doo.
Dumbed-down...
Dumbee doo down bee doo bee doo.
Come softly,
Fleeced sheep.
Stay sleeping,
And weep.
