The Greatest Fools

The greatest fools are the ones
that hold fast to facts when truth is gone
still the need to be right
consumes the workings of sound minds

no longer do the crowds align
those masses forced to harmonize
the end result is fractured thought
when sanity is subtly bought

by dogma’s bent in bubbles’ realms
the saddest jokers are at the helm
with agendas forlorn from hope
when madness is more than a trope

instead reality bends its knee
with the idiots flocking to the decrees
truth is absent at the end
when verity is then condemned.
