Anti Intellectual - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

Have you ever heard about people
Who point shotguns at UFO's?
How brilliant those folks are you say,
So sit back and watch the show!

And then there is another group
Who enter abandoned homes.
They will tell you to please keep quiet,
So they may hear any ghosts they know.

Have you ever taken a turkey bone
And broken it while making a wish?
Just who will answer the wish you made?
You might as well have broken toy fish.

Please don't step on a sidewalks crack.
If you do someone breaks their back.
Anti intellectual should be defined today
As people who are really whacked.

I know of people right here in my county
Who raise pythons in their mobile homes,
That have escaped killing children and pets.
What planet are these morons from?

I know where these folks gather in mass
So you had better just drive right past.
It is called by the name of Congress.
If doctors they'd be known as quacks.
