Group Mensality
by Ray Fuller

Is there anybody denser 
Than the membership of Mensa? 
If you wish to be admitted 
To those oh so brightly witted, 
A tested I.Q. you must rate 
At least a score of one-four-eight. 
If they’re all so bleedin’ clever 
Then why must they band together? 
Does intelligence encumber 
Such that safety’s sought in number? 
Go for self-determination 
Is my much superior station! 
Mensa membership ‘s not heaven; 
And my I.Q.? One-four-seven.
