The Gift they Keep on Giving





The Gift they Keep on Giving

Opinions are worth
what you have paid 
for them
Absolutely nothing
They are for the
sheer delight 
of the giver
The all-knowing
If I were you crowd
who really want
to control you
confuse you
tease you
and keep you
under their thumb
 
Wading through
their swamp of
I know what’s good
for you persuasions
and ironing out
the creases
of their
misguided logic
you make it to
the other side
None the wiser
for their
unwanted gifts
and decide
to ignore it all
