Poem: Beating the Statistics

Statistics say,

single parents

struggle with poverty.

Live a life of immorality.

Receive government handouts.

Cause high taxes.

Ineffectively raise children.

Generate generations of illegitimate children,

who steal, murder, and cheat.

Percentages and numbers.

A sampling of a group

makes statisticians’ statistics.

Based on reality

and partiality.

Statistics is the subject of debates.

Sometimes, the topic of discussions.

Only time and people

change statistics.
