Poetry – Truth Decay

Truth Decay

I was browsing on my computer today

When I suffered an attack of the truth decay!

A man was telling me that the earth was flat;

That it was vegetables that were making me fat.

He told me that Trump was fighting the lizards,

It’s not global warming causing heatwaves and blizzards,

That the planet was just six thousand years old

A word from Trump’s mouth was worth more than gold.

That Clinton and Biden were in a paedophile ring.

They were socialist scum and it was Trump who was king.

It seems the Deep State was controlling me.

Only Trump could set everyone free!

We never landed on the moon, that was a lie!

And it was the CIA blew the twin towers up to the sky.

That Obama was never a true American.

He faked the certificate and was African.

The Nazi holocaust never took place!

Jewish propaganda – a complete disgrace!

It was the alien lizards who were running the land.

All Muslims were terrorists and should be forever banned.

The rapists and murderers were after us all.

The only recourse was to build a great wall.

The media spreads lies – it was so unreliable.

The only truth was to be found in the bible.

Looking real smug he implored the whole nation

To continue the good work and send a donation.

With a last wave he drove away in his limousine.

Promising to send us back to the Pliocene.

Well I was shocked, shaken to the core.

I didn’t know what to believe anymore.

I’d been quite clear when I started on my way.

Now I was confused by the truth decay!

Opher – 19.11.2020

I think the media and politicians have brought it on themselves. With partisan spin and outright lies they have contrived to fool the public.

Nobody trusts them anymore.

Then the unscrupulous manipulators use the internet and social media to implant ever more fanciful untruths.

Paedophile rings.

Socialism equal tyranny.

Lizards from space.

Everything is a pack of lies. We never landed on the moon. The holocaust never happened.

The Deep State is controlling us.

We’re under threat from Muslim invasion.

Europe is lost to Muslims.

Millions of immigrants are invading.

They are all drug dealers, murderers and rapists.

Politicians like billionaire Trump feed the lies, exploit the division and purports to be the saviour of the working man – while scamming tax and squirrelling away a fortune.

The media bought it on themselves. They lie and their lies have undermined the fabric of society.

I'd like to hear from you...
