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
