Critical thinking, oh critical thinking, how important you are

In a world that's filled with noise, you help us see afar

You help us cut through the clutter, and separate truth from lies

You help us ask the right questions, and see with open eyes.

For in a world that's full of bias, and opinions that are strong

We need the tools of critical thought, to help us all along

We need to question what we're told, and examine all the facts

We need to be skeptics at heart, and not fall for easy traps.

For what we think we know, is often not what it appears

And what we take for granted, may not stand up to the years

We need to challenge our assumptions, and test them with rigor

We need to be open to new ideas, and not be such a figure.

And when we see the world anew, with critical eyes that gleam

We can make better decisions, and find solutions that are supreme

We can see the bigger picture, and not just what's in front

We can be more thoughtful, and find new paths to hunt.

So let us embrace this skill, this art that helps us thrive

Let us all be critical thinkers, and not be swayed by jive

For in a world that's ever-changing, and full of so much noise

We need the tools of skepticism, to help us find true joys.
