Irrational Beliefs

Must feel good
to believe you are right
all the time,

no room for colour
between black and white,
especially grey,

to throw science
out the window,
along with rational thought,

so convenient
a construction
for your tunnel vision,

if you believe it
it must be true,
it just feels right,

if it feels right
it must be true,
surely

who can argue with that
lack of logic,
the inconvenient truth

is never welcome
by the faithful,
the flat earth society.

Wouldn’t want facts
to get in the way
of a good story.
