After what you have heard,

What you have seen

And you have read,

There is nothing substantive

One can possibly add.

You still remain unperturbed.

With loads you may be at odd

Tuned to your internal fame-of-code

And move on along your chosen road.

You see my friend,

Truth is relative,

Statistical fact pure additives

Sprinkled over for reasons simply persuasive.


This much I can say,

Avail yourself you may

But hold your nerves and don't sway.

Ramrod you stay.

Hard facts are hard to come by

They are far in between.

When you see one

You will be keen

To grab it by the fin

Over the false perceptions

You wore so thin

To let it win.
