Alternative Facts Abecedarian

America is a land of limitless alternatives.

But plurality of lies is not progress.

Congress won't dig for the answers in the ground.

Doubtless or dubitable,

Everyone should check their own

Facts, because the alternative--

Gradually losing touch with reality,

Hard as reality may be to define--




Like moths to a flame,

Masses search to believe in

Nothing, in

Only what was believed before

Paternal “truths”; truths beyond all

Question. Please,

Righteously unravel alternative realities.

Search for

Truth in every tapestry,

Understandings in every strand.

Verification never burns those

Who don't light a flame.

Xenophobia is sequestered in smokescreens.     Only

You can prevent false fires.
