Ghouls of science and politics



Science teems with delusional slobs,
Ruining lives their chosen jobs.
Ethics is not of prime concern,
On backs of people fame is earned.

As Stalin's favorite pet, and Mao's,
Trofim Lysenko's ideas flowered.
Pseudo genetics to famines led.
Tens of millions starved dead.

Mengele, death's angel doctor ghoul,
With his experiments countless killed.
This Hitler's geneticist children slayed.
For science perversions laid the way.

Fauci poses as the science guy,
Drools for power, millions die.
Virus gain of function funded,
Blames a bat, acts all dumbfounded.

In Wuhan, viral playpen got built,
Genes were spliced into bugs that killed.
To roam the world it was released,
Death count exponentially increased.

Brimming with hubris, political rat,
Duplicitous, unelected bureaucrat.
Short in stature, in his minds a tower,
Gnawed his way to heights of power.

Some revere this pseudo-god,
Pretend scientist of the dim mob.
Shutting all the opposition up,
All of counter views must Stop.

Megalomaniacs raise the stakes,
Leaving carnage in their wakes,
History made a bloody mess,
None their sins ever confessed.

Claims of "settled" science are loud,
Influencing unwashed crowd.
Media hails their sanctioned ghouls,
These are the World Order's tools.
