I want facts.
One cannot face reality
if you don’t have the facts.
Fine, we know that gnats
don’t gnaw their way out of their prison cells,
as a matter of fact,
they don’t even gnash their teeth,
and cats don’t often drink themselves
into catatonic states,
certainly aren’t evil,
if you can find a lapadaisical Lap
you will have to explain
what the chap does, or doesn’t do,
doves and hawks soar and fly freely,
but in the White House
they fly by the seat of their pants,
the French, I understand, discard their armour
when their thoughts turn to amour.
Yes, facts are what I need,
like explanations of what are watts,
and why pusillanimous
is not an obscene word,
we know that water is soft,
except when you fall into it
from a great height,
flightless birds isn’t a contradictio in terminis,
it only sounds like it.
These are all sound facts,
although some may seem strange.
It is bitter that sweets
can be bad for your health,
and I congratulate you
that you have kept on reading
up to this point.
The fact of the matter is
that reality is highly irregular,
and we must tighten the rules
until we are all on the same page..
Are you still there?
