Measuring the Lunatic Fringe


By Elton Camp


On the Internet their wacky beliefs are found

Although they have very long been around


The lunatic fringe has a range of belief

Confused and frustrated, they suffer grief


They grow angrier with each passing day

And insist all the more on things they say


Crazy, naïve, gullible or just uninformed

Against all reason and sense they’ve stormed


Birthers, conspiracies, 911, or assassination

Or Illuminati or freemasons control the nation


For every event and each incident they can

Easily discern operation of some Master Plan


Each wild claim they assert they can prove

And to believe their words, it does behoove


Some of them are simply deliberate deceivers

The nonsense is very real to some believers


Yet, governmental lies the public’s trust lost

A growing lunatic fringe is the terrible cost


Its indignation will likely continue to grow

The end result nobody can possibly know
