For Bear

Though I know we don’t all live on one end
Of bell curves of intelligence and wit,
Some people (not myself) with lightning fast,
Clear minds must find it hard not to throw fits
Confronted by what passes for clear thought,
For educated, fact-based strong opinion
But masks only the weak reflection of
Some pundit with self-serving, thoughtless minions.
I can only imagine the response,
The exercise in battened-down frustration
Such minds must force themselves into when they’re
Engaging in a reasoned confrontation.
Admiring all that I’ve seen him forebear,
Then, these lines are a tribute-gift for Bear.
