He Tells Her
by Wendy Cope

He tells her that the earth is flat—
He knows the facts, and that is that.
In altercations fierce and long
She tries her best to prove him wrong.
But he has learned to argue well.
He calls her arguments unsound
And often asks her not to yell.
She cannot win. He stands his ground.

The planet goes on being round.

And, of course, getting warmer. No wonder we’re sweating the prospect of this fact-free numbskull running the country!

    It will take a generation to recover from the policies and judicial appointments of this boorish idiot and his congress of fools. The Dreamers’ dreams are now nightmares. Our Statue of Liberty will shed tears for the refugees rejected from our shores.

    I appreciate the fact that you’re restraining yourself so well, it’s quite admirable. I, meanwhile, have none of this restraint, as I’m currently writing a post called “I Told You Dumbfucks This Would Happen, and GUESS WHAT?!”. I appreciate the maturity.

    Hi, Joe. Love your comment “fact-free numbskull.” Perfect. And he’s backed by a whole calamity of congress folk who are also fact-free numbskulls. I am trying to come up with a term for a group of these things parallel to a murder of crows or parliament of owls, both of which are much wiser, by the way.
