Poetry – The Age Of Selective Truth

The Age Of Selective Truth

We live in the age of selective truth

Where facts are political belief.

Everything is a conspiracy

All elections won by a thief.

We’re burning alive in bushfires

Drowning in floods, starving in drought.

All the scientists are bought and sold

Global warming is really in doubt.

Cash is now the only god

Whatever the cost to the planet.

We desperately need another yacht

Though tree-huggers try to ban it.

History is being rewritten

Fascists are now of the left!

The holocaust never happened

Gross inequality is never theft!

If you do not like what you see and hear

Call it out as fake news!!

Don’t allow inconvenient truths

To get in the way of your views!!

Bask in the lies of selective fact

When opinions count more than proof.

Whatever your leader tells you

That’s bound to be the truth!

The election was definitely stolen

He never broke the law!

He made over a billion in office

But he’s on the side of the poor!

So, believe whatever you want to believe.

The Earth is really flat!

We were all created three thousand years ago!

And Jesus is coming back!!

Follow the trail of the money!

Geopolitics is the mighty elite!

They are baby-eating aliens!

And we’re all just dead meat!

We live in the age of selective truth

Where facts are political belief.

Everything is a conspiracy

All elections won by a thief.
