Frontiers of Credibility
I don't know and I don't care,
And I don't want to waste my time
Failing to accept your dare
To give an answer that's sublime.
Have you ever felt that way?
It seems, some times, that everyone
Has felt temptation to betray
Integrity for speed or fun.
And yet, there is another side
That competence, extreme, may show:
Respect and input are denied
To any but those "in the know."
Consequentially, it seems,
While experts may defend the truth,
BS'ers spread their fertile memes
So public discourse stays uncouth.
The Internet and Wiki age
Appears to bring a brand new dawn
As information turns the page
But human nature carries on...
When all that's known is on the net
And vetted by the widest crowd,
How likely is it, we'll forget
BS by sharing truth aloud?
