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
