Between The Lines

Can we ever know what's actual?
Are the facts we're given factual?
Are the things we're being told
Just some things we're being sold?

Read between the lines

Are newsy editorials
Perhaps too territorial
By writers over-smitten
With opinions over-written?

Read between the lines

Do we want a quid pro quo
When straight facts we want to know?
Must we always be short-changed
With the truth all rearranged?

Read between the lines
