A Degree In Stupidity (A Protest Poem)


Driving some friends home last night
who lived about thirty miles away
in the dim light of a political figures mind.
My eyes strained to see the road markings
and road direction signs.
Other cars headlights didn't help
as their diver struggled to see in the dim light
with their full beam set to blind.
The political figure who thought up this situation
probably sat by candle light
as bright lighting was out of their minds comfort zone.
I have no doubt the political official has a university degree,
but me thinks it was awarded from the University of Stupidity.
The street lighting is set at dim to conserve energy.
However, I can only shake my head,
that it was thought up
by someone with very low thinking power
and a degree from the University of Stupidity.
Sadly these individuals land jobs
in planning departments, everywhere in the world
and are hailed as great stinkers, not thinkers
by everyone with an ounce of common sense.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
