Because It Is What It Is And That's That

I searched for a different answer
One more suited to my cause
But it wouldn’t change a smidgeon
Because the truth never does

Truth cannot be teased to please us
Truth will not alter its stance
It remains unchanged in spite of
Finagling or circumstance

Though we may not always like it
And though we may change its name
Underneath our blither-blather
The truth is, truth stays the same

      Doubter: Absolutely!

  2. How apt..."Underneath our blither blather...truth stays the same". The Rock of Ages is immutable.
