You’re Not

~~~~~ No longer will we require any high-school senior To recognize the words sagacious or prevaricator. I do not think that’s wise, to say I do, I’d be a liar, As the dumber we become, the lower we’ll aspire. The only smart things we’ll own are phones, cars And really, both are more intelligent than […]
