official pronouncement

nowhere do we find that they who claim
to know in every case what is the right
to have in their possession the true light
will when things go sour take the blame
nor will they even affect a false shame
at best you'll see them taking a brief flight
claiming a deep concern but never quite
giving the things that happen their true name
so what if people lie and writhe in pain
they volunteered knowing what they could get
there's nothing here to see keep moving on
we'd be all right if you didn't add some strain
there's nothing here to anger or to fret
now just shut up or too soon you'll be gone
