They Said

I’ve always hated them.

You know the ones:

The People That Say.

Some of us hear what they say and believe it.

The rest? Idiot scum.

They say all sorts of reassuring things.

They said it’s always been done that way.

Now they say it’s high time it changed.

They said that it was safe.

Now they say that it’s not.

They said it was bad.

But it’s the best chance we’ve got.

They said we should avoid it as much as we could.

And any prior statements were misunderstood.

Whatever they said, it’s safe to assume.

It’s not what is said that’s the clue, but by whom?
