Spellbound And Tantalized

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

The most efficient and sufficiently accepted way,
To get to the truth is to introduce it.

'But what about the opportunity,
To debate the insignificance of assumptions?
And without producing the evidence just yet? '

Hmmm...
You're right.
We 'are' out to captivate an attentive audience.
With a much needed higher TV rating.

'Exactly.
So what is it you propose we should do? '

Well...
Of course I am with you.
And after reviewing my thoughts,
You 'unselfishly' brought to my attention.
AND with considerable reality.
A broader demographic is in dire need.
By all means,
Continue to debate the insignificance of your assumptions.
And tomorrow we will see what the critics have to say.

'Let's cross our fingers.
And hope an increase of viewers,
Remain to stay spellbound and tantalized.'

~Objection!
This has nothing to do with the case.
We are here to uncover both 'evidence' AND 'truth'.

Your 'objection' has been over-ruled.
That 'old-school' stuff has played out.
We are in need of RATINGS.
This is a new day!
Is that understood?

And stand back.
More to the left.
You are blocking my closeup shot.

Which liars deny,
