Dumb Down

Too big

Too bright

Dumb down

Or take flight

.

A peg here

A chunk there

Knocking out

That haughty air

.

Still shining

But not for long

Think you’re right

You’re oh so wrong

.

Only one king

Not two

Dumb down

Or you’re through

.

Light dimmed

Posture stooped

Voice lowered

Just for you
