 Truth

by Yip Harburg, Rhymes for the irreverent, FFRF, Inc. Madison, WI, and The Yip Harburg Foundation, 2006

 

Truth is a foreigner

Under every dome,

Truth is a refugee

Looking for a home.

Without flag or passport,

Hounded, plagued, and banned,

Truth must be smuggled in --

It has no fatherland!


Truth is a subversive,

A super counterspy

No CIA or OGPA

Can shoot or bribe or buy.

Truth is the little candle

That throws its laser beam

And cuts the cancered darkness

Out of the living dream.
