Dim, Dimmer, Dimmest

Dim witted it can be considered,
And appropriately applied...
To someone who tries denying,
Of knowing nothing about...
The storing of bombs.
Locked away in a box.
And dropped off by relatives.
Told where to put them in one's house.
To be that dim witted can be forgiven.

One dimmer witted than just dim.
Is someone with a mentality,
Many believes jokes and teases.
And their actions remain kept believed.
Until they do something incredibly stupid.
Like go where the bombs are stored.
To count them.
With then to pour upon that box kerosene.
As a explanation,
That the doing of this thoughtlessness...
Would prevent carpenter ants,
From chewing on the box.
To be that dimmer of wit is hopelessly dim.

The dimmest of the dim wits.
Who follow along,
With the stupidness of mindless B.S.
And yet...
Defend one with their loyal obedience.
Hoping in this crazed environment,
To be approved and accepted.
Know, not to assume, that one who leads,
Is mentally unfit to make a sandwich.
Their own sandwich.
Is absolutely nuts!
Yet who,
Can be blamed for staying...
In an environment like this?
When others with prestige and status given...
Believe others are jealous and envious,
Of those who are that close...
To one who has the power to blow up,
All the favorable foods and condiments...
Refrigerated in the basement.
And near the bombs stored in a box!

Is it possible someone that mentally innocent.
Can believe such power stored in one...
Or perhaps even more boxes.
Is their's to potentionally blow up?
Because of the love they have,
For the sound of destruction!?

What word could describe,
Minds like this...
That are beyond,
Ignorance, dumb, stupid, dim and witless.
Although defended to be,
Intelligent, competent and leaders beloved.
Could there be in the water?
Besides the other mess already in it!
