And the shoes fly

Is the sign of these times a flying shoe?
Have we forgotten common civility?
Free speech guarantees the right to argue
Some wish to silence with hostility
Sometimes the future looks so very dim
Information everywhere free for all
The reality of this is quite grim
It is prolefeed mixed with some vitriol
So many madmen ranting and raving
So much noise yet not any more signal
We listen to someone misbehaving
Before looking at facts we only yell
It seems that everyone fears listening
We prefer fighting to understanding
