the Truth just sits there

15 Feb

from Plato to Play-doh

from Pluto to Pixie dust

the Truth just sits there

an unformed chunk

until

we give it life

and yet no matter what we do

dress it up as ecstasy or

pound it into submission

the gargoyle upon the ledge

can only stare

it can’t compare

no matter how well carved

the Truth just sits there

while we offer our opinion

to whoever will listen

giving life

to the never was

to the could never be

the old man laughs out loud

as the blood runs down his leg

tomorrow is another day

tomorrow is another day
