Hacking Common Sense

With certain look and confidence,
Authoritatively commence
To override all innocence,
Dictating phony common sense.

Stand tall, talk slow, act like you know,
You learned it all so long ago,
Degrees or status ought to show
Where lesser mortals dare not go.

And just for measure add some lies
To cut the simple down to size:
Sophistication, it implies,
To baffle truth with your replies.

Now, condescending, to conclude,
Be clear that it would be quite rude,
Endangering your even mood,
Should listeners, with words, intrude.
