I Heard An Empty Saying…

I heard an empty saying,
Drifting down the hall.
It was quite clear the person saying,
Had no knowledge behind it at all.

A heartfelt, insipid something,
That was meant to be so true.
But when thought was used to investigate,
It made me want to puke.

“What’s true for you is not true for me,”
Others did intone.
I had to resist the urge to grab a big stick,
And strike them to the bone.

See, blithely spouting “knowledge,”
Is a pastime of the fool.
The Greeks thought it heavenly,
And so ended their rule.

But here we are again,
As history repeats.
In the land of Liberty,
Full of “knowledgeable” g(r)eeks.
