We the people,

live on the edge

of knowledge

built by human endeavour.



to embrace,


not scorn.


You claim wisdom 

ignore experts,

you born again




I can’t believe 

I’m reduced 

to refuting 

your nonsense.

Thank you Stephen. I’ve given up trying to argue with such views. It’s an impossible task with some people. That’s why this poem is so curt.

Thanks also for the likes from Holden, Manish and Red Brick Keshner.

Well put, John. A good response to climate change deniers ('the science is divided, mate, it says so on You Tube') and people who (still) claim that the moon landings never happened.
