Fabric of Narration

Narratives as woven motives,
Involve outsiders and natives
A slice of war and life
Skillfully crafted superlatives

It’s a charade of choices,
Opinions and popular voices
It could be a pacing story,
Of rabbits and tortoises

The sources are tentative
May compromise on perspective
The nasty play with Truth,
Might be biased and derivative

Freedom of expression, it is,
Integrity might give it a miss
An epic moana of words
May adhere like a lasting kiss

The onus lies on the reader
To know who is the real cougar
What exactly is being served?
And if it needs a hardline disclaimer!
