Just the Facts, a poem

Just the Facts

I've been told to believe in facts
but I've never actually seen one;
do they climb trees or dig deep burrows
to hide themselves from the sun?
I'd like to find the place those facts
come out to play and run,
but till then I'm not sure that they exist
and weren't made up just for fun!

no more than a bit of doggerel - but it is so that facts are not 'things' in a physical sense, but metaphors, reality sifted through our human brains and language.
