Equal Opportunity

by September 21, 2023 0 comments

This compassionate country
mandates acceptance of facts
that are differently verifiable.
We must regard each fact

as able in its own unique way.
Citizens must grant it equality,
whether it was wrested
from primary sources

or was a lucky contextless find
or was artfully fabricated.
Let no one abridge
the freedoms of any

foundling fact on account
of it having been born
in a desolate neighborhood,
its parents unknown.

Alternate your alternates, keep that folly fresh. – mh clay
