The Gatekeeper

By Mike Johnson

What you know, is where you'll go.
If your map is wrong, you'll struggle lifelong.
Your mind needs a gatekeeper, not a sleeper.
With garbage in, garbage out, you'll never sprout.

But who's trusty? That news babe who's rather busty?
That professor who's musty? The doctor who's become robusty?

Open your eyes. Conventional wisdom isn't very wise.
That status quo just doesn't want anyone to grow.
"Authority" is about control, that & flapping their blowhole.
Here's a shock -- they lie when they talk.

If you buy the lie, you see him as your guy.
If you do not, you tell everyone he don't know squat.
Either way you assist, you're now an ignorance evangelist.
With garbage in, garbage out, you'll never breakout.

Better to erase your brain, then let it fill with inane.

Discernment is the real trouble, deep inside your bubble.
The unawarest people on earth, provide the most mirth.
The lies they bought, has them caught.
All they do & say is wrong, but they won't stop singing that awful song.

All you are & all you'll be, is what you allow on your brain's marquee.

Even more, we all can see, if your gatekeeper was absentee.

So how do you erase the crazy when you've been mentally lazy?

The only truth without blemish is
By Their Fruits You Shall Know Themish.
