Which way’s in? Which way’s out?

referendum flags

The big day
Is approaching
Fast
View’s
Of both sides
Being hurled
And cast
This shit is getting pretty serious
 
Farage  
Just trots out
Platitudes
Cameron’s
Scares
Breed attitudes
Normally I’d find this shit hilarious
 
But people
Are having
Their brains bleached
Tolerances
For bullshit
Long over-reached
Trance-like, the proles seem delirious
 
I fear
For an empty
Tomorrow
On course
For collision
With sorrow
Yet those with no plan strut imperious
 
All that we
Ask
Is for clarity
Both sides
Focused
On factual parity
Not shrouded in the fog of the mysterious
 
Just for once
Furnish us
With facts
See what happens
When truths
Interact
Instead of just the downright spurious

The politics of misdirection

medialies

We’re plagued by doubts
Beset by questions
But pay no more than lip service
To well meaning suggestions
It kinda just proves
That we seek not information
More just an ego wank
Of bias confirmation
It doesn’t help that media
Tells us what we need
Bends us to their will
With poison in their feed
It doesn’t help that prudence
Cannot reach a mind that’s closed
One that never questions
Will not see a lie opposed
I fear for where we’re heading
When those leading, just wont see
A future more substantial
Than “what will be, will be”
