Righter Rhetoric Premiere Contest Winner

Something a politics professor once said Has been crashing round and round my head He said: 'Zara. You could convince black that it was white And white that it was black instead.' It's also been said that I struggle with reality That black/ white, wrong/ right polarity Because I see whiter as blacker and blacker as whiter Righter as wronger and wronger as righter So I am become a writer rather than a politician Because any rhetorician has plenty proof That politicians tell the truth to lie While writers lie to tell the truth

Hi Zara, and a cup to boot. Congratulations. Intelligence to make my head feel tricked but then it all makes sense somehow.
