Propaganda and Truth

An all-knowing fellow told the whole story,

Every secret, every detail,

But there was no crowd, no backers or profit

So truth was revealed but to no avail.

When spoken too slowly its skipped;

If spoken too quickly its not understood;

If frankly presented, forgotten;

If theatrically, laughed at, no good.

A fellow can tell the whole story

But regardless the truth will stay true.

And sometimes to listen and be open-minded

Is the best you can possibly do.
