Opinions and facts

Opinions are curved.
Facts are straight.

Opinions hover restlessly in the air,
whereas facts are tied to places and dates.

Opinions are fighting a battle
which will never be won.
Facts and their shadow-sisters, lies
are ammunition which add to the fun.

When the personal meets the actual,
light sparkles in our eyes.
Opinions and facts coalesce
in the arrangements of the wise.

Opinions may never agree
but can find co-existence on earth.
So facts lay scattered all around
caring not about value or worth.
