EXPERTS REVISITED

Those of us taking the trouble to see

Know that experts don't always agree.

In point of fact, they'll often call out

Other experts - then watch just how they fall out!

They'll be keen to be interviewed

On whatever they deal in

Always seeking a renewed

Chance to invest personal spiel in 

Their status as experts beloved by the media

Who produce them like dogs trained to be greedier

And expect the rest of us to rely on their word

But how's that possible when to us it's occurred

They don't seem to know any more than the rest of us

(And even less than those who might be the best of us!).

When it comes to experts I've grown not to believe

The tales of doom and gloom that they weave,

Trotted out it seems at the drop of a hat

To hold forth unreliably about this n'that.

Careful I'm certain they make sure they don't send a

Message that unhelpfully might suggest an "agenda".

Money is the means that enforces their insistence

And lubricates most experts' self-satisfied existence.
