Who holds the pen writes the truth

entry picture

When is a frog not a tadpole?

when is a giant just tall?

how far must you travel to journey?

and who deems a sacrifice small?

 

It depends upon who does the sizing

for they choose what's big and what's small

for who holds the tape, measures context

holding history's future in thrawl.

Tommy, this is relativism in a nutshell. A good poetic endeavour. Thanks. Keith
