So many places he could be hiding
Especially since he was such a small tike
And she made sure to count to one hundred out loud
Ready or not, here I come!
Couple of minutes later he came out of his spot and wondered what happened
Her giggles gave away the fact that she never decided to…
Can it be we are a time that the number of likes is a metric of success?
Leaving empty falsehoods and catchy memes the currency of the realm
It is sad that each one of us has to become fact checkers to just exist
Creating a media weariness that affects all of us to one degree or another

They were so worried about all the lies
Reading through forum after forum to authenticate facts
Until their eyes crossed with information overload
That was when they discovered a fact that superseded all others
How few people actually really cared
All she ever let them see was her screen face
Cold, aloof, mysteriously beautiful
The fact is she was scared, scarred, and so plain was something to hide

Pushing the paperwork across his desk
Larry knew he wasn’t the most exciting man
As a matter of fact, he preferred that he was so stable
It made his life nice and predictable
Now if he could just convince himself of that
To most people it would be just a couple of data points

Each point represented a better life
Now she had evidence that her business was going to grow
Despite the fact she only made five dollars of profit so far
