It’s Not What You Say

I’m pained to admit

It’s not what you say

But how you say it

That counts these days


The most blatant of lies

If said with authority

Is enough a disguise

To fool the majority


People are blind

Or at best just ignorant

They’re always inclined

To side with the arrogant


Because they confuse

Rampant self-importance

For a cavalier attitude

And justifiable confidence


When will people learn

To see through the charade

And no longer be turned

To not be easily swayed
