A man won’t duck an arrow that isn’t shot.
a woman will not nurse an unborn child.
Some people will, without a second thought
(without a first), pick cotton in a field
of clouds. It isn’t there? No matter, Mac,
what matters is — the truth is what we say
it is, don’t you forget it — we’ll attack
whoever points out, what’s up there is sky.
Some doctors cure what isn’t a disease.
There’s fame and money there, and there’s a point
where dogs will scratch at nonexistent fleas
when loudly pointed out by those who don’t
imagine truth exists apart from what
they want, and what they don’t want there, is not.
