I can't think of anything poetic about it.
It was Kellyanne Conway, Trump's aide who coined this phrase to describe Trump's lies, and his Press Secretary's lies. What can I say?



Alternative Information

Is the newly accepted way to say lies. :(

wait, I'll attempt it:

A veil of uncertainty surrounds
Attempt to insufflate elusive truth.
Shifting perception,
Iniquitous shadow
Obscures perception.
Mired in a miasma
Of self-creation,
We commence in
doubting truth

Oh well, it's all I could do.

This is an accurate and very astute piece. Alternate information is a misnomer. I thought he actually said "alternative facts" which is even worse. I have done a bit of debating online and term defies belief. There is a battle going on for the truth and I fear no-one will really win.
