David Galef : Bestseller

It's all true. Just a few details have changed:
The suspect's age; the dress she wore that night.
The sequence of events was rearranged.
If you look at the transcript, you might
See a discrepancy in what was said,
The place that’s called Al's Diner doesn't exist.
Old Mr. Flugel wasn't really dead.
The court order of cease and desist
Isn't what the stenographer recorded.
The Vietnam war was lost, not won,
The account of the election, distorted
Even before the voting had begun −
But we call it all real, based on this prediction:
The sale of memoirs eclipses that of fiction.
