“Policy Based Evidence Making”

Our evidence, on policy, is based.
We speak of those ideas that we hold true,
Defining truth as that which can be traced
To ‘facts’, or statements of our point of view.
Yet when research shows real proof is thin
Or non existent, then we mention lies
And damned lies and statistics, start to spin
And label “Doubting Thomases”, whose eyes
Require substantiated proof.  For us
Our truths and truth itself are one.  Yet still
Ideas alone cannot be left to buzz
About like bees in people’s minds, the will
To make the world in our own image wins,
The sculpting of new, faith-shaped facts begins.
