Grains of Salt

They say-that numbers don’t lie,
But people sure do.
Data’s just there.
People skew.

Ob-jec-tivity…
Is a tough thing to find.
There’s usually bias,
If-not agenda in mind.

Intentional or not,
We’re shown part of the truth;
Rarely full context;
Like banner at booth.

Looks-good at-first-glance;
Designed for buy-in.
But, facades don’t last.
They’re far to thin.

We can see through many.
Good ones confuse;
Tying in issues,
They know what we’ll choose.

Us against them;
Political sides;
Lines that divide.
They’re foolish guides.

So, it’s also been said,
Believe half what you read.
Let this serve as reminder;
A warning to heed.
