Often erudition bamboozles
derails trains of thought
leads astray, simple folk
to wander in nonsense
as the pedant, on pedestal
takes himself seriously
obfuscates in irrelevant detail
useful concepts left confused
in scattering of “to the points”
real causes, risks and threats
never said in bombastic trickery
we have been deceived. Does anybody
really know anything, out there?
