TRUTH

the truth,
though flexible,
seems fixed
one wonders how
it does such tricks
and bends itself
to suit the mind
yet calls itself
the bottom line
 
a fact
these days
is not one thing
but any song
you want to sing
or any color
you might choose
to change the truth's
natural hues
 
for truth that once was  
black and white
is made these days
of bits and bytes
and thus is easily
refined
to suit a certain
reader's mind
 
and any fact
can just be used
to make your stand --
it's all hard news
 
one twists the truth
to suit his spin
the truth looks hard
but shit! -- it bends
