Writing 101, Poetry: The Commons , FALLACY

Today, let’s write poems that are wholly illogical.Try not to consider this prompt as a call to nonsense but rather a call to use your good (creative) sense to arrive at firmly misconstrued ends. Surprise yourself!
Alternatively, make poetry from known philosophical fallacies. Make that straw man stand by a red wheelbarrow, put the genius of the crowd to the test, or tell the tale of a (tautological) tub.

Fallacy

Sun is the centre of the solar system
So we think.
But who knows?
Our reasoning may be wrong
For Truth keeps changing.

Six hundred years ago
It was believed
Earth was the centre of the Solar system.
Copernicus proved this wrong.
But his knowledge was not accepted.
Truth was believed to be unchanging.

In future our reasoning may be proved wrong
But we have to accept
That Truth keeps changing.
And change with the times.
