Right Again, Mr. Riley



It isn’t idiocy that he’s speaking–
and therefore, it is clear, it’s not sincere.
His sources I am diligently seeking.
How did he venture so far from the sphere
of his boneheadedness — and offer here
a fragment of what almost seems like sense?
Oh, whence did all this sanity appear?
It is the most confounding of events,
its inward contradiction so immense
that if fills skies with wild unknowingness
and bodies forth a thousand puzzlements.
Wait? Have we found the source at long last? Yes!
I hold it in a hard, triumphant fist.
He isn’t smart: he’s just a plagiarist.



–Tom Riley
