There is no herd immunity,
Against pervasive darkness.
Facts see no objectivity,
And reason threads just quit.

Oh woefully self delusion,
Is rampant on this planet,
Through chaos and confusion,
The wretched do commit

Half truths and innuendo,
Most often used as weapon.
Recruiting feeble minded,
To soldier, battle, hit.

Philosophers have pondered,
And sages strove to teach,
Yet tiny minds won't grasp it,
Their common sense is breached.

Try as you may to cure it,
Truth's pill is tough to swallow.
Try as you may to graft it,
Host will reject, and ditch.

Yet what of those who struggle,
Who swim against the current,
Who follow threads of logic,
Through intellect that's rich?

These are brave men and women,
They take their time to ponder,
And stand against the chaos,
With God given intellect.
