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.

There’s so much fake out there it’s hard to find the real.
Yes. Spin, propaganda, lies, copies, fake brands – everybody wants to fool you in order to get something out of you – your vote, your cash, your support. Picking your way through it is a nightmare. We are being manipulated and we know it but…..
It’s so hard to find the real stuff. No matter where we turn they seem to have a bias.
I think that’s fine as long as you know what the bias is. It’s when you don’t realise their agenda that you’re at risk.
