Dumb Down Time In Your Prime!

Society seems dumber. That we knew since before last summer. Like waaaaay before. But do you comply at your shore? Comply with the dumb. Now that is dumb and then some.

People are dumb.
Dumb as can be.
Rule of thumb,
Every one in three.

Reverse that though.
One is smart.
Or at least so so.
No horse before cart.

So what to do?
What can be done?
I'm on to you,
As you dumb down a ton.

Dumb down the writing.
Make it easy to read.
Even in bad lighting,
Only one syllable words take seed.

Dumb to be cool.
Yeah, that is the way.
Ignore true friends in school,
Join the cool fray.

Dumb down your work.
Can't show the boss up.
You'd prove them a worthless jerk,
Be on the street corner with a cup.

Dumb down your kids.
Don't let imagination roam.
Others may flip their lids,
What goes on in your home?

Dumb down your blog.
You want all kinds of views.
Farts jokes are high on the hog.
You really can't lose.

Dumb down the news.
Plus make it scare.
Give all the blues,
With some lies to spare.

Or am I wrong?
I'll have to ask a pup.
He sang a new song.
I guess it's called dumb up.

Do you dumb up or down? Notice how many a dumb thing is taking the crown? Probably have to live under a rock not to see that. Most of such dumb things are dumber than my scat. Dumb or complacent seems to be the way. Pffft such things can go drown in the bay. We'll always give such "dumb" sass and we won't be dumbing anything down or up from my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  6. I just do things the same and if someone doesn't understand, it's on him.
    And if kids are dumb it's because they get way too many breaks from school these days.

  17. As a teacher I used to rail against dumbing down the curriculum, especially when we were forced to waste time teaching young kids to practice things like how to correctly shade in a multiple choice circle for a standardized test. Everything bowed down to the almighty high stakes tests, while art, music, p.e., civics, social studies, printing and cursive, and creativity were shortchanged or eliminated. Now, with all the technological devices, the attention span of children is being decimated ~ everyone else too! It's depressing and doesn't bode well for the future.

    1. Yeah, correctly shading will sure get you umm very far
      In the other direction with the door ajar
      But the almighty tests surely rule
      As kids sit, stare, and maybe drool

  21. I've found I often have to "dumb down" my conversations with strangers, but I try never to talk down to my friends and loved ones (even the really young ones, like the pre-adolescents), and I don't "write down" to the readers of my blog.

  23. Schools have dumbed down expectations, because truth hurts students' self esteem. In college, kids now adults can't write or do math successfully. So, don't give them a grade--let them give themselves the grade they think they deserve.
