And there stands a smiling Susan,
Delivering alongside her brother,
A warm and passionate remembering
Of the life of Granny Smith.

And there sit I at the piano,
Momentarily disgruntled
That THE HOPE LADY inaccurately reported
A fact about Granny Smith.

Granny fashioned rich, crisp shirts
Origami-style from one-dollar bills
Rather than cute little folded men
As THE HOPE LADY erroneously reported.

And David mused as we drove away
That stories were penned in the Bible
Thousands of years after they happened
Yet still people stand to defend them
As accurate statements of fact.
