Fake news

von Norbert Rath

Not everything they print is true,
some news not even half way.
When people think the sky is blue
they see now it was hearsay.

It can adapt unlikely colours
and such that no one would believe.
Astonishing as here in pallor
of a yellow you perceive.

It’s quite the same with printed news:
the one who wrote them chose the word,
and those who read them get their clues
just as they want – partly absurd.

All understanding is perception
only in the way we make
model news by some adaption
to our brains – sometimes they’re fake.
