Charting

 

We've got some information that with you we’d like to share,

but it’s really possible that the facts are all not there;

 

so what we’ll do is dress it up and make it look the part

as we put it all together and turn it all into a chart.

 

We might go for one with lots of blocks, each colored a different way,

we’ll point it out and waffle so, you won’t know what we say.

 

Or perhaps we’ll make a circle with many slices of a pie,

we’ll give an explanation but we’ll leave you thinking ‘Why?’

 

We can fill out all the info just by drawing up some lines,

and say why this is rising, and why that is in decline.

 

We say it makes it simple but that’s really not the purpose,

it’s more to dress our ramblings up and make some kind of circus

 

where we are the ring masters and you – you are the clowns

as we dress our lack of knowledge in a way that makes you frown.

 

It’s all down to interpretation, what we want the facts to say,

we’ll pick the charting method that our message will display.

 

And when we’ve finished talking, if you’re still feeling confused

we'll know that we were right on in the method that we used.
