Scientia potentia est

News literacy project

Could I possibly implore you
Oh ye of little sense
Not to fall for every
Ploy, as you peruse the
Really, I’m not the only one that thinks, you
Are coming off half cocked
Claiming insider information

The ‘truths’ you’re privy to online
Have to be weighed with common sense
Evidently, in which you’re lacking-
Or you’d have thought of this yourself.
Really, I’m not judging-
I just absolutely believe, that when Sr. Francis Bacon
Said, “Scientia potentia est”- he knew
That knowledge can only be power, when your
Sources are correct.
