This one came about due to FOX News being the default station when I turned on the television in my hospital room


A Sign Of Sickness 


I try to be objective

I attempt to see all sides

I’ll listen to your arguments

When our perspectives don’t coincide

I pride myself on my ability

To maintain an open mind

To remain as cool as a cucumber

When I witness intellect maligned

Of course there are others

Who fan the fever pitch

Those who stoke the fires of doubt

These are liable to do or say anything

Even if they don’t know

What it is that they’re talking about

Making noise without purpose

Other than to hear one’s own voice speak

It is an act of voluntary vomition 

Which allows the pyloric sphincter to leak

This disease is common

Although seldom fatal

Symptoms include

A propensity to point and accuse

Until a vaccine is developed

The only treatment is to watch FOX News
