The consensus is certain 
humans are terrible at communicating

half a year driving in this sort of city
and I have yet to see someone using a turn signal

even in this summer of cicadas
why has no one invented the bug weather report?

follow the latest guidance based on
irrefutable studies we’ll get around to publishing someday

which also contradicts it turns out
everything people could possibly misinterpret

to mean whatever they want it to mean
too many people following what they hear

sneaking into their ears guileless and natural
propaganda a self reinforcing cycle

true facts apply as long as they are sound
falling into forests where nobody can be found
