A Statistical Abstract

Not really relevant to the text, but I liked the picture.

There any number of things

We believe

Because we’ve read statistics

.

Even though many of us admit

We don’t understand statistics

Have little idea how they’re computed

And even less where the data came from

Or how reliable it is

.

So we don’t know what we believe

Only who we choose to believe

.

So it might behoove us

On occasion

To be slightly more skeptical

.

We may find, upon reflection,

That many people we have known personally

And put our faith in

Turned out not to merit that trust

.

So why do we implicitly trust

People we don’t know at all?
