Simplicity Sells - Poem by Armando Gomes

Why are the stupid always in charge
Inflated egos and distorted views to make them feel large
The system is corrupt
An educated string of disorder and bad luck
Meaningless and without reason
They hunt down free thought like it’s in open season
Always go with crowd
don’t dare raise your voice and free speech just isn’t allowed
no reason to be different when we all think the same
and if it was you who was questioning then you’re surely to blame
the hunger for knowledge is left cruelly famished
why they think out of the box? I mean what’s the advantage?
The more you think, the stranger you are
So when it comes to intellect you’d best stay well below the bar
