A Penny For Their Thoughts
'Tis a heavy burden,
A working human brain,
For when the world's an idiot,
The clever man's insane,

It weighs in at three pounds,
If you have the full amount,
Though it seems that most I know,
Got theirs at a discount,

If you dare to stand aloft,
And say the ship is sinking,
They will throw you overboard,
For the crime of of thinking,

The world it is an idiot,
Its thoughts come off the shelf,
And Wise Man is a lunatic,
For talking to himself
