Uninfested - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Wouldn't it be easier to dissect one's thoughts?
Analyze their origins to see where they were taught!
And share a common sense believed...
To satisfy all without thinking!
Giving those who 'approve' what's done,
No chance to screw up and blame anyone!
That would be fun...
If something like that could protect like guns!
Or whatever it is that's accepted,
By those who make claims they are better than everyone!
But thoughts digested...
Come from minds uninfested!
And not from books,
Selected by those studying to be crooks!
