The politics of misdirection


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”
