Nowadays the counterblast stridence
is loud and clear.
Self-proclaimed refined minds,
intellects of pumped-up stature
opine as they wish,
expectorating their invective,
their biliousness, and all
from dodgy standpoints, irrespective
of the norms of veracity; after the fall
of the great, but not good, equally
guilty are others adjudged to be
by facile inference, willy-nilly.
So the lazy armchair observer
of the world scene, the sciolist,
feels no need to verify
assertions as to their plausibility,
becoming thus accessories
to the atrocities of rank prejudices.
