Facts are never simply what is true.
One looks at them as one would look at notes
Resounding in the context of a key
That makes sense of it all. No note evokes
Yearning but from an aural point of view.
Each fact, as well, requires an inner key
If one would make some sense of it. It, too,
Gives way to meaning as it numbly votes,
Having shrunken to a number, to construe
The truth of a surmise statistically.
