Did you know?

question markDid you know that
If you were to unravel
The blood vessels inside the average human body
(60,000 miles, they say)
You could circle the world 2.5 times?

Have you heard that
Every 15 years our cells completely regenerate?

Has anyone ever told you that
The phrase ‘giving flak’ comes from
World War II
Flak being the
Gunpowder from a fighter jet, that is
‘Giving’ meaning the shooting

Apparently,
If you smile, even
If you don’t want to,
You feel better,
Eventually

And I’ve heard that
Standing like a superhuman
Helps you feel strength

Now I am surrounded by
Alternative facts
Streams
Polarized information

He said she said right wrong left right

What is fact?
Does science exist?

(Apparently not)

Maybe the Earth is flat?
Somebody once believed that it was.

Does this poem make sense?
(Probably not)
Then again, what does?

All I know is that
Believing does not
Equal
Truth
Anymore
