Something Dumb

Something Dumb


Scott Eric Alt has something dumb to say.

I know because the sky is overhead.

Sunny or cloudy, brilliant blue or gray,

Loaded with solar promise or the dread

Of thunder, why, it’s all the same!  Instead

Of empty air, it’s all a sign most clear

That Alt upon the mouthy path is sped,

Conventional and mindless.  And sincere?

That’s not for me to judge – not now, not here.

I merely recognize stupidity

Belched up throughout the seasons of the year

And sold to idiots apt to agree.

The sheep, illiterate, bleat their amen.

Scott Eric Alt is yakking once again.
