Truth Works - Poem by Dick Holmes

'When the truth works its way
through the net of illusion
and plunges back into the sea, '
says the fish to the fisher,
'the freedom it experiences
then is far greater than
that it experienced
before it was caught.'

'So you are the truth? '
says the fisher to the fish,
checking his net for a tear
the fish might work through.

'I am the truth, and you are, too, '
says the fish, jumping up
out of the net, 'and so are
the net and the sea.' Splash!
