Truth does not hide in plain sight

Truth is no longer “absolute”

What you perceive as truth I can refute

With an equally compelling set of arguments

Two different versions of truth we can present

If you try to search for the truth online

You are unlikely to find it because by design

“Facts” aligned with your beliefs you see

As a result of algorithmic wizardry

Performed by technology stalwarts few

What you want is what is shown to you..

**

There are people on the opposite end from you

Who have a diametrically opposite view

They see a different truth when they look online

At work is a complex Machiavellian design

You exist in one bubble, in another they reside

The twain do not meet, thus your beliefs stay safe inside

**

So how do you find out the actual truth, you may ask

This is definitely not an easy task

But at least be aware that your version of reality

Is unlikely to be accurate in its totality

Stay away from extremes because the truth usually lies

Somewhere between opposite points of view, it would be wise

To look for the most “moderate” version of an issue

That is the one most likely to be true..

**

Take everything with a grain of healthy skepticism, I say

As you hear various versions of “reality” every day.
