Rousing the faithful
Feeding the lies
Inflaming the emotions
Deaf to the cries
For selfish gain
To the generated pain
Fake news feeding real crimes
Fake smiles for our times
Fake sincerity for personal gain
Fake compassion masking real pain
Real people hypnotised
The veiled disguise.
Ignoring all the shouts
Of the truly wise.
Led up the garden path
That’s built of where’s and why’s.
How to pick your way through the exaggerations and lies that are trotted out to frighten us?
I think we are being manipulated for political reasons! Even our memories are fake!
We no longer believe experts and are instructed to ignore them. Now we believe the headlines of the tabloid press or choose to get our view of the world from dubious internet sources.
Truth is hard to find. Too many people have a vested interest in deceiving us.
