They could bring all their empirical evidence,
show up with the sweetest smile.
They could tip their hat,
tilt their head and say,
Now, Sugar, then give it all they got.

I'd listen and want them to give it their best shot.

Maybe they could give their testimony,
tell me a time in their life when they found different.
Any time they would pause, I'd nod and repeat what they just said.
I'd smile and laugh and try my best to understand.

We would become old friends from the instant we met.
I don't know how I know this is correct.

I am only grateful it is.
