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
