Communication



Communication is communism!
say the deplorable authoritarians,
it must cease at once!
The risk of understanding is too great—
we cannot permit it.
Enlist your tongue as an agent of confusion.
Take nonsense as a spouse,
and together perform your duty
to obfuscate everything you know in your heart
to be true and unacceptable.
When in doubt, keep quiet.
Remember, your instincts trump their experts.
Education is contamination!
When will you ever not learn?
