Entitled to opinions?  Yes, we are!

We stand forthright for that inspiring view.

The sun may be a god, may be a star,

May be a cancer-causing agent too.

We think our thoughts.  There’s nothing you can do

To change them into thoughts that you prefer.

We will not make adjustments on your cue.

We boldly tell our neurons:  “As you were!”

What sort of guilt can minds like ours incur

By not acknowledging your arguments?

Our consciences, we say, you cannot stir.

Ideas are not subject to events.

Do petty details irritate?  Relax!

The truly noble mind transcends the facts.
