what then is truth

What then is truth? A mobile army of metaphors.

“Okay troops pack yr ruck yer headin’ out
take enough gear for 72 hrs who knowz
when you’ll be back …”

“and wizeguy,” Sgt Majur sayz
I’ve got my eyez
on you”

Pte Truth looks at Cpl McTruth,
scratches his nuts,
“on the bus, off the bus
alwayz the same damn thung”

“what else is feckin’ new?”
buddy sayz back to him,
a ricochet, bullet splay,
“itz all just über-cock”
