Tough Guys

The middle of that ugly range
Known as..."political spectrum"
Is a vacant lot where we can change
The plucks on the extremist plectrum,
For extremities are not so smart,
Even anatomy says so,
Nor where you will espy the heart
For a more intuitive show...
And some extremes are insensate,
Yet still somehow chock full of pride
And when you state "that's not so great"
Your better sense soon gets denied
By witless dolts so stoked with vim
Their noggin bulb remains quite dim.
