Bullshit Filters

Bullshit filters are like
Dialysis machines strain
The blood gullibility osmosis
Sweep waste and illusion

A short jazz phrase terse
And syncopated with odd
Ninths and stacked elevenths
Like the weave of panty hose

Close fitting and silk
Can’t blow air through it
Woof so tight against the warp
Only truth bleeds to the other side
