A "top-kick" for things
keeping saucers away... (?)
...is the stuff we call "News,"
or "the lies of the day."
Attractive and structured,
it seems non-facetious,
but reality shows
and, quite, specious.
...Some more than others,
as agencies go;
consider FOX News
as Sean "sucks hard" and "blows"...
but all of these "efforts"...
somewhat guilty of same,
consider Chuck Todd
and some others by name...
See, these dodge real truth
in a mix of thin dreams
to prevaricate "balance"...
..."Flawed" and "FUBAR" a mean?!
Our Earth is in peril
within and without;
to equivocate "nonsense"—
while hypocrites pout?
We're threatened by asteroids,
imperiled with storms,
we spin in a bleakness
that CAN'T be the norm!
...The face of the sun
is bereft of its spots,
but the news is of "Flotsam"—
and some *Jetsom* they've got!
Yeah, surf the foul "wave"
of a "News" that is cable.
See the evasion;
you can—if you're able!
It's "Birther" and "Teabags"
or "Right-winger" brain-stain.
These distract from alternatives...
like a holocaust's freight train!
Its cars are disaster,
The caboose is a time bomb
and gravid with crime.
...The engine's the "news";
so, derailed, abused...
we're played, disrespected... too,
we're wholly defused.
Our eyes, then, where they want them
...on our "tricked out" bed of nails...
milking meager livelihoods,
and the spending that entails...
...the middle-class dissolving
like some sugar in the rain,
earnest folk conditioned
it's their lot to lose all gain.
The *talking heads*
are quick to preach
"sound channels" for our thinking,
but their *news* is a distraction...
from real scabrous monsters slinking!
Its spoor distorts cognition—
clues us out (by all intention!)...
from what it was they stole,
is my contention!
So, what might these be stealing, then,
employing craft and guile,
what soulless machinations
are deployed for such as styled?
They steal our sensibility.
They steal our self-respect!
They steal to feed the monster
for their *stuff*;
we write the checks!
They steal our potential...
built our castles in their air
then stroked abused libidos
so's to move us in up there!
No, as "suckers" shorted even breaks,
admit that we're betrayed.
Why, even now "they" tighten coils...
these reptiles! Corporate snakes!
See, employed's "malfeasant media"
and it's used as needs arise
by the class providing sustenance
to a "news" we should despise...
so, call it "news" or "entertainment"—
"infotainment" if you'd rather.
It's a mass prevarication,
shameful twaddle... harmful blather!
Too, the news is but a mouthpiece
for elitists... ...we uphold!
...Glad bastards owning "meters,"
the ones with all control.
The unelected boss-man,
the one who sets his tone,
the one who shafts you endlessly?
... It's you ensures his throne!
Yeah, try to drink this "infotainment"
when you thirst for real news,
and you're choking on miasma—
confounded and confused.
We buy reversing mortgages
and the blue big-boner pills
and so sell out our potential
For a rich man's lurid thrills.
Too bad you learn your fear's respect
for his kicking in your knees!
He'll have his way completely.
He does as he would please.
He writes your harsh morality,
then charges you its fees!
"News" is a misnomer;
it's a show to see—you see?
There's nothing "news" about it;
it's contrived for you and me.
See, he owns the news-day *cycle*,
or his "Lawyers" work for free!
...So, "he" makes a lot of nothing
and ignores the real tale.
You're imprisoned in your mind, you see—
a contrived but solid jail.
Why, they can even hide the saucers
surely filling daytime skies!
They obviate more honest folk
from "bully pulpits," right?
And, the *NEWS* works hard to keep you
from its subtle—awful truth.
There's little that they can report;
they're muzzled, so, abstruse!
Too, the "bone-yard" is awash my friends
with the skeletal remains
of journalists who won't "play ball"
and were ejected from the game!
That's why they fill the airwaves
with a blend of "panic stew"
and the sex acts of politicos
served up to me and you...
Lo, the truth would storm their castles
with its books "broke wide"—laid bare!
It would shatter toxic battlements
with the histories, it could share.
See, truth swings a sword indifferent
to the wishes of smug men—
reveals at last the callousness
they've used upon us, friend.
See, truth lays the blame,
can't be lame,
or be defamed.
It stands apart and is the frame,
or any shame!
...Too, so tuned in explication,
understanding is relief,
so truth as told,
when told that way,
will capture all belief!
It's true. The Media's hiding saucers
and our future from our senses.
Machinations of elitists,
through their newsfeeds:
drive us senseless!
The *NEWS* is just the corporate shill
for "products" snakes must "sell."
It doesn't really matter that
these stink... or reek and smell!
Too, the "watchers" are repelled anew
with each new lie they witness
and are frightened by our conduct...
or the manner of news "business."
It can even be most incomplete,
salacious, and malforming;
its "mission" is to sell bad "soap,"
and that should be alarming.
