Poem - There’s No Truth

The poem "There's No Truth" was inspired by a meme that listed "differences between modern Democratic Party Values and Republican."    The list contained a host of argumentative logical errors.  This feel-good exercise, for the imagined Republican Party, would not stand up to a whispered breeze of analysis.


There’s No Truth

The vile is compared to the best
this turn of word to express
exaltation none shall deny
against the scum that's always foul

the very worse stated there
imagined vice in duress
while paragons with halos set
are the home team without regret

punching at the straw man's breast
damning sins that don’t exist
the result is simplified
as ill thoughts are justified

contrasting with a cardboard form
exemplary in biased thoughts
the very worse against the best
there’s no truth in this contest.
