Cover your windows! Bolt your doors!

There’s a plague on the rise.

It’s highly contagious and extremely dangerous

and it’s growing to a monstrous size


Your view becomes skewed, your mind is destroyed

Common sense is a thing of the past

There is no hope. There is no cure.

Once you catch it you become empty and daft


Carried by the human race and spread by association

Mutated by hashtags, yolos, and swag.

It’s infecting the entire nation


The plague is stupidity and it has always been here

but now that we speak freely and without regret

It festers and grows

It thrives on the internet


It’s morphing and flourishing and coming for you


So cover your windows and bolt your doors

Because stupidity is on the rise

It’s highly contagious and extremely dangerous


and I’ve learned this is the human condition
