Alternative Facts #30PoemsChallenge #Poetry

Who needs the truth after all?

Does it matter what is right or wrong?

But the news comes at you, large and small.

 

Though, in these traps you’re bound to fall,

Inevitably swept along.

Who needs the truth after all?

 

Yet, how can we move forward, tall

To authentic guides within the throng?

But the facts come at you, large and small.

 

We need to make the epic trawl.

A task we know is all-life-long.

Who needs the truth after all?

 

Even learned men have hit a wall,

Sucked in, or proud or too headstrong.

But the shit comes at you, large and small.

 

“Alternative facts” do not enthrall,

With posts and tweets that sing their song!

Who needs the truth after all?

But the shit comes at you, large and small.
