We misuse reason, rationalise and blend

Perception by itself is not enough
A psychopath can use it for bad ends
Truth itself may make a conman laugh

When we’re targets of the cold and tough
We must hide our truths, and lies defend
Perception by itself is not enough

To the naive soul, the world seems rough.
We misuse  reason, rationalise and blend
Truth alone may make a conman laugh.

Be sparing with the private and its glut
Boundaries need armour which won’t bend
Perception by itself is not enough

To live we need our common sense and pluck.
We need  our wisdom, learned as we ascend
Truth alone may make a conman laugh.

So with the weather, we can now contend
Our senses vital show us what portends
Perception by itself is not enough
Truth alone may make a conman rough
