If reason was kind. It wouldn’t allow people To go to hell in handcarts Whilst it sits by pretty and dolled up. It’d go out of its way Lend a listening ear Offer its counsel FOC It’d compel its narcissistic ego To allow it to attend to people’s issues. It’d come out of its ivory tower To see what the world’s “really” like. But methinks reason’s unkind. It’d rather have its wits around itself Than waste time availing itself to people’s thorny issues. It’d rather have us be blind to it.
