Fact Check It, Dummy!
by Jim Rapp
Shrewd politicians check it out;
knowing they are not the only crooks,
they're certainly not about
to let a shyster cook their books.
Smart consumers check it out:
past disappointments demand
scrutiny of those who spout
their righteousness to push their brand.
Your banker checks it out;
your credit, savings, cash on hand
determine if you'll make the cut
for a tiny loan or several grand.
So, why don't you check it out;
before you hit the Forward key
ask, "Do I know beyond a doubt?"
If not then check it out, Dummy!
"You shall not repeat false witness,"
the ancient Hebrew/Christian law decrees;
your unconfirmed FORWARDness
makes you complicit in iniquities.
