Science

Is supposed to be unbiased, right?
Like, some kind of universal judge
To test every thought or theory we
(Naturally) sun-worshipping beings
Can conceive. Yet how many readers
Can remember an anecdote sounding
Right enough to reinforce its truth
So much it blocks evidence against?
How many “skeptics” see correlation
Alone and dismiss it? Is absence of one
proof of another? Science is written
By the winners once they’ve done
enough losing. Maybe we learn
The truth first and build from there.
Maybe we chase a gleam and prove
Something we thought impossible.
Maybe it’s the money or the politics,
But once I meet an alien, or an accurate
Astrologer, or someone who truly
Changes their mind…
I know I’ll never prove it.
