A Poem: Which Where or What 

We fret over facts,
dally over the tally
to get sure about certain,
and thinking we know,
the proof on our pages.

We fall into faith,
heed as we need
to give all allegiance,
and feeling we believe,
the Word in our Books.

Knowing and believing,
posed and opposed,
to which is one and not the other,
as if poring into either of each,
reveals any real difference between.

We fool over folly,
and duel as if duals,
to grasp one side or another,
no wonder we wonder
whether which where or what.
