Ode to Infotainment
2011. Nathan L. Bostian
In an age of simple slogans and blustery books / How shall we show an argument's lame?
Some resort to snide sneers and haughty looks / But that only fans the emotional flame.
Some complain of ad hominems and ad hocs / But that sounds like an unending whine.
Some argue with evidence and logic / But that only casts pearls before swine.
Of all the ways one may disagree / With a pundit's pride and brawn:
I suppose the most effective may be / To simply shrug and yawn.
