Facts
by Rudolph Tenenbaum

The President spoke
To the fact finding board.
He quoted facts,
And he underscored

That one should be cautious
About facts,
As one is cautious
About fats.

"All facts," he said,
"Are made in the Hague.
The Hollanders make them
Pleasantly vague.

But some of the facts
Are blunt and exact
And quite inconvenient,
As a matter of fact.

But those are probably
Made by Danes.
Danes are troublesome
Nowadays."

The President spoke
To the fact fighting board.
He said, "Ban facts
Across the board."
