Truth War

 

My truth has magic

Said the Shamen

It twinkles in the starlight

 

My truth is truer than yours

Said the Priest, clutching close his leather-bound book

 

My truth is more scientific than yours

Said the Scientist, slightly singed by her own Bunsen burner

 

I’ll be the Judge of that

Said the Judge, looking down from the high ledge of the law

 

Truth is more nuanced than that

Said the Philosopher, plucking at a loose thread in his cardigan

 

My truth sells better than yours

Said the Editor, with a smear of ink on his face like war paint

 

Our truth is more accessible than yours

Said the Web, counting each trivial click as quiescence

 

My truth is more selective than yours

Said the Politician, spewing out statistics to make her point

 

And my truth is loudest

Said Trump

 

But my truth has magic

Said the Shamen

It twinkles in the starlight
