Somewhat Diogenical

Where have all the brainy people gone ?
Are they lost or do they sing a song ?
Did the bell toll for them or did they get the gong ?
Or were they proved right or disasterously wrong ?

Perhaps it’s not something that would surprise
We all render harsh judgments and moralise
And our cruel epithets on occasion cauterise
Their high sensitivities in a varied guise

Where have discursive discussions gone ?
Those ones where one is right and others wrong
Where speeches are never short but hideously long
And you label your learned opponent a ‘ding dong’ ?

As the warm summer ends
It’s time to refocus our collective lens
And toast the health of all our friends
And speak of good deeds, means and ends.
