Reality is subjective, reflective, depending on your objective,

I guess. Crazy Town has become Main Street, the domain of the detective.

 

That's the problem, some of us aren't willing to put in the effort

or aren't interested in what is true, when a 30-second soundbite, of the sort

 

we are getting from our soon-to-be Commander-in-Chief, has warped what is real

into the political equivalent of a drive-thru Happy Meal.

 

Not very nutritious, but tasty, and it comes in a colorful bag,

because the cook has set on a four-year anti-reality jag.

 

Reality's now optional, the hard truth is now flexible.

What seems a lot to me as being incomprehensible.

 

The things that some believe to be true,

is now the number two in the Ego-Funhouse drive-through!
