Persistent With Their Contradictions

Those persistent with their contradictions,
Should not be labelled or considered hypocrites!
That would imply they have a conscious intention meant,
To diffuse a solidarity...
Composed by others already in agreement and accepting,
Of a flow of things prior to being manipulated...
By a listening to those voicing their contempt.
Hypocrites solicit and advocate dissent.
With a doing of it to get attention.

Those unknowingly persistent with their contraditions,
Can never be accused of using their minds independently.
And are more accustomed to seek the opinions of others,
Who they depend upon to convince them first to doubt...
Any hint of a thought process that comes out of their mouths.
With a reminder that an objection,
May leave them to feel like fools.
And hyporcrites could care less who already perceives them,
Of the fools they are and how this is addressed...
Regardless of whose time has been found to have been wasted.
