Sometimes, “conspiracy theory”
Is a term thrown around too liberally,
As a synonym for incorrect fact.
Don’t presume that.
Assume the knowledge you can provide
Is not already possessed.
Do not let the meaning of that phrase be repressed –
Because “conspiracy” requires organised thought.
It is the act of plotting, or conspiring, of course,
And that is not my saying to discard all you’re taught,
Only most of it,
The Imperial bits.
It is a hot day today,
But the Prince won’t sweat.
But that is not because he is a lizard,
But because he’s patiently inside awaiting
The reopening of the Pizza Express.
