The Chains they Crave

Their opinions are frail
but they hold to them vigorously

Their arguments are predictable
but they think they’re on to something

They never consider the unintended
consequence of their opinions

They just react as if their opinions
hold the answer

They just preach as if they’ve
found the remedy

They’re not interested in questioning
their own opinions

They’re not interested in consulting history
to assess what they believe

They watch the news like it’s telling
them something useful

They don’t know they’re
being fed rubbish

They don’t know they’re
being fooled into something

They cling to their politics
in times of dismay

They clamor for more laws
thinking that’s the way

They look to politicians to save
them from the day

Poor slaves

They know not the chains
they crave
