factNfiction intertwine
the unchecked ivy
rampant on the vine
suffocates the rose

from seedling gums.

the weaving carpet thread
who can explain

scenes upon the movie screen

the annual trek is constant
to take the waters of the cure
to break the bread and sip the wine
but when the lame and sick and tired
depart the same they leave no doubt
that factNfiction intertwine.

tennis now is played on artificial grass
artificial flowers appear so real

donald is a duck: fact=a
donald duck is fiction=b
therefore donald duck =aNb

factNfiction intertwine
disprove my theory
using algebraic rhyme.
