Rebellion Of Truth - Poem by Nat Z. Punx

it isn't this way for everyone
but for some
truth has taken quite a beating
the pendulum swings
as it does
or does it?
it doesn't matter
if the tail wags the dog
when movement
is all that matters

    Opinion's a strange animal
    That feeds on information - dismal.
    Yet there is the other side
    When those who feed opinion seek to hide
    Facts by obscuring
    With words of twisted meaning.

    And so opinion grows and grows
    Until it can not be contained by those
    Who once thought they could control
    The process by growing bold.

    Then they discovered that opinion had become
    A creature that was unknown by some
    Of those, who thought they were the master
    But found opinion growing faster.

    And although they had tried to shape opinion
    They found it was not as it had begun
    But now had a vicious bend
    As feeding 'new' facts was the trend.

    And so opinion grew and grew, turning vicious, bit by bit
    Until it attacked the very hand that fed it.
