Not Much Makes Sense

Doing a little research
To better understand social issues
Related to AIDS

Not much makes sense

The rhetoric becoming gospel
The dogma becoming policy
The science becoming religion
The conspiracy becoming the vision

Not much makes sense

The egos get in the way
The politics get in the way
The return on investment gets in the way
The hype gets in the way

Now it makes sense

Academia
Politicians
Big business
Contrarians

Ah…

The quest to find a cure for HIV
Need not be hung up
In all this quasi sensibility
No special interests should reign supreme

But

When doctors need the credit
When politicians are inclined to put votes above evidence
When conglomerates bottom line public health
When dissidents muddy the waters unscientifically

Not much makes sense
