Well, facts are by one's interpretation. From the scientific and to one's understanding. I can go into a pretzel twist with fact based propaganda used to sway people one way or another. I think if one really digs deep into my poem, they may find there own thoughas take through the path I created.

Fact or fiction it does not matter
To me every thing is just natter

Facts are always a bit blurry
When it is based on theory

Might as well use common sense
Between facts or nonsense

Information given from one end
Very near, a bit distant, foreign

Your facts, a theorized reality
Non-fiction to some in practicality

Truth is only in your head
All laid out on a thread

Once snapped it falls
Bouncing into rubber walls

Theory, History, Psychology
All can create a catastrophe

Changing rules to lay out facts
Truth on its head, back tracks

The trouble you see is not here
The chaos you seek is every where

World views are your local news
Which side of reality did you choose?

People usually believe what they want to believe or their interests compel them to believe. Just remember the last lines of professor Legasov in Chernobyl miniseries.

Yep! Watched that last year, great story. It goes a wee further than just one person's beliefs. I have a propensity to doubt when science pushes theory when no real facts have been clear.

I doubt anyone will have a nonbiased account of this year with Corona. Too many things went on both globally and socially within countries and politically. Like all revolutions the winner was not the winner, but a puppet. Just finished watching Lucy Woolsey's Greatest fibs... the Russian revolution. All three episodes for this year shows how deceptive our year was. Not that I can't stand trump, just don't like how wicked the other side has become. Almost want Trump over what the other side has to offer.

Since you liked Churnobyl, you will like the BBC special of 3 years ago called Pandemic. They pretty much summed up Corona long before it happened. At the end the key fact was you can only slow it down, until a vaccine is made. The world would not be effected if we were not globalized, and highly mobilized. The big difference which nobody is willing to state... many countries did not pull off controlling the virus, with out being centralized all to its self. Dense populations cannot move about, without effecting others.

If science was straight up with facts, there is no way to properly detect Corona let alone stop it. But no, they pussy footed around because big money kept their hands deep in it. Corona did not happen from any Government leaders, it's all because of the entitled freedoms of big money.

Thanks! I mix up my poems a bit. Don't like to make too many good ones so to speak. If someone is willing they may find a few nuggets buried deep in my collection. For the most part I vent my twisted thoughts into info-poems. Since hardly anyone gets the other side of a view as of recent, without listening to Rush Limbaugh. Sorry but Rush, Howard Stern and Cuomo in a ring, I may just listen to them battle it out.. until a head ache starts. Which should take a few minutes.
