The Last Days of Donny

The Last Days of Donny

The last days of Donny –

In the Alamo, under siege,

Still tweeting conspiracies

To those he would deceive.

In the fantasyland of Donny

The election was stolen.

He ranted and raved

And the seas of hate were swollen.

Now Donny calls on the militia

To storm the seats of power.

While muttering in his bunker,

Influence ebbing by the hour.

Now Donny’s hitting out –

Putting prisoners to death.

Locking more kids in cages.

More threats with every breath.

They are impeaching Donny now –

Shoving him out of office.

For the crime of insurrection

Impeachment won’t suffice.

They’re going to check his tax returns

And every dodgy deal.

Without the immunity of the presidency

The heat is getting real.

He owes seven hundred million bucks

And the banks are closing in.

Donny’s going to pay the price

For his lifetime of sin.

No more grabbing pussy

Or hanging out with Epstein.

The truth about his exploits

Have yet to be seen.

In the last days of Donny

The lizards are back in charge.

The Deep State has won.

Donny has been fired.

Opher – 14.1.2021

It all looks dire for Donny. They’re coming for him. His authority is melting away and his friends are jumping ship.

He’s split the Republican Party and brought shame on the USA. Now he’s going to pay.

The irony is that all those terrible jibes he made to Hilary were really about himself. He’s the crook who needs locking up!

He is the tax evader, the mafia connected crook, the sex offending playboy who hung around with paedophiles.

This conman pulled the wool over millions. He pretended to be the champion of the poor. He pretended to be a successful businessman.

We’ll see!!

Poetry – The Conspiracy Boogie

The Conspiracy Boogie

Joe’s got an earpiece and the world is flat.

Joe’s on drugs – what you think about that?

Don’s fighting a secret war against the deep state

If he doesn’t win it’ll seal our fate!

Nine Eleven was a CIA plot.

There’s a communist insurgency that’s really hot.

The holocaust was just fake news.

More propaganda from the Jews.

The UN wants to control the whole world.

And the WHO has completely failed.

The Dems want to take out guns from us!

They’ll do it too if we don’t make a fuss.

Trump’s a genius that’s why he’s a billionaire.

He’s clever, he avoids taxes – and we don’t care.

We never landed on the moon.

It was all Hollywood – filmed in June.

Covid-19 comes out a Chinese lab.

It was also caused by 5G, put that on their tab.

Hitler was a socialist, fascism is a leftist thing

The right is right about everything.

Evolution is a communist lie.

We all go to heaven when we die.

The Democrats and Hollywood have a paedophile ring.

They eat babies while doing their satanic thing.

Obama wasn’t a true American

He was an African man.

Antifa and all this George Floyd stuff.

A bunch of vandals – and we’ve had enough.

The whole of the media spews out fake news.

You have to check the internet to get the right views.

If we drain the swamp we can save the day

And stop the evil lefties from getting their way.

Immigrants are rapists and drug pushers too.

We need a wall to stop them coming through.

Trump is the saviour of the American way.

We’ll vote for him come what may!

They’re stealing the election with their fraudulent votes!

We’ll take to the streets and rip out their throats!

Opher – 1.10.2020

I’m sick to death with this constant stream of conspiracy garbage being cooked up by Trump and broadcast by right-wing propaganda sites. It is obscene.

The whole bunch of garbage is so preposterous that it defies all rational thought.

If there is anything that can be considered as ‘The Deep State’ – a conspiracy of billionaires – then Trump is in it up to his neck.

The irony is that the person spewing all this rubbish is the prime candidate!

Poetry – Who is it?

Who is it?

Who doesn’t pay his taxes?

Who’s telling porky pies?

Who’s claiming hoaxes?

As the population dies?

Who is arrogantly pouting?

Who ignores abuse?

Who shouts fake news

Every time he’s accused?

Who is using dirty tricks

To inflame and divide?

Who uses derogatory language

That many can’t abide?

Who operates in chaos

While feeding his base

Who brought his country shame

And is a complete disgrace?

I think I know the answer

It hits you with a thump!

Opher – 28.9.2020

Who is the worst leader America has ever had?

Who is a narcissist and arrogant sociopath?

Well it’s not hard to see. It’s Trump.

What has happened to politics??

I think we can trace it right back to 9/11. When the planes flew into the World Trade Centre the world changed.

We were going along quite nicely – standard of living was good, we were getting on top of racism. Progress was slow but we were heading in the right direction.

9/11 and the wave of extreme Muslim terrorism sparked off a reaction. Fear created paranoia. There was a rise in racism and a surge of nationalism – kick out immigrants, shut the borders.

Populists seized their opportunity, rode this wave of fear and racism, stoked up hate and division and gained power.

Politics became extreme.

In the USA it resulted in Tea Party madness and then Trump. The rabid far-right populist loonies took over the Republican Party and transformed it into a fascist party.

In the UK we had the lunacy of Brexit followed by a take-over of the Tory Party by the ERG and the election of Johnson the affable populist clown (really a cynical narcissist).

The whole world lurched to the far-right with the election of nutcases like Bolsonaro, Oban, Modi, Erdogan and Morrison.

Poetry – We don’t need experts

We don’t need experts

We don’t need science.

We don’t need experts.

We can just guess the truth!

They don’t know anything.

They always get it wrong.

We’ve got the proof!

They are trying to control us

With their fake news.

The agents from the Deep State.

We know the earth is flat

And men walked with dinosaurs

And that Trump is great.

We’ve got our guns

And the bible to lean on.

We’re not going to be told.

Who needs education?

Just educated fools.

The bible is our gold.

Opher – 30.8.2020

It is very scary to see the result of Trump’s undermining of experts and scientists. It throws into a world of superstition, mad speculation, absurd conspiracy and opens us up to abuse.

Every nutcase in the world is pumping out propaganda to snag the gullible fools.

They don their silly costumes and go trotting out their fake news and conspiracy theories as if it were the truth.

Poetry – Truth Decay

Truth Decay

Oral hygiene has taken a dive –

As politics talks – lies come alive.

The stench of the lying rancid breath

Is the sweet reek of democracy’s death.

We live in the age of Truth Decay

I need a political dentist to save the day.

Fake facts and fabrications are spouted forth

By spin doctors and web sites South and North.

Designed to obfuscate, cast doubt and deceive

They undermine everything that we believe.

Conspiracy theories are trotted out with glee

By those who enjoy confusing you and me.

We never landed on the moon

And the CIA brought down the towers.

Global warming is a leftist plot

And ISIS is controlled by some of ours.

Obama was from Africa

No way was he true American.

Clinton is a warmongering bitch

Lock her up! We need a Republican.

Abortion is murder and overpopulation a myth,

Scientists are the politicians’ tools.

Mass migration is a terrorist scheme –

What we need are bigger walls.

The Jews are behind everything that’s wrong

We need to keep the race pure.

There are tides washing in from the shit-hole States

And arriving on our shore!

We’re red-neck flat-earthers proud and free!

Nobody would catch us taking a knee!

We love our flag and our country!

We love our guns

And you’d best not disagree!

Truth Decay has taken hold!

Truth Decay has gone to the head.

Truth Decay is the symptom

That America is Dead!!!

Opher 28.7.2018

I’m pretty sick of the stupid right-wing conspiracy theories that abound in the States! The cry of Fake News has undermined the whole fabric of society and polarised the population.

Hatred and division have gotten Trump elected and he thrives on it. There is not even the pretence of ruling all the people. He rules his mob.

Fake news is going to result in a lot of deaths but it’ll make Trump very much richer.

Poetry – Here Lies Lies

Here Lies Lies

Here lies lies,

                Sacrificed on the altar of spin.

Here lies truth,

                Lost in the propaganda within.

Casualties of war

                As each side seeks to assert

Broadcasting lies

                To win in a world of hurt.

We’re all victims

                In the morass of untruth.

Believing lies

                We accept without proof.

All’s fair

                In love, politics and war.

Deceiving us

                As they break every law.

Here lies truth!

                Here lies lies!

Buried with the dead!

Opher – 7.4.2022

How can anybody believe what they are told? The truth is always manipulated. One has to read between the lies to see if we cannot glimpse the truth below.

We live in a world of spin, fake news and propaganda. All sides do it. They call it politics. It’s a world of lies.

The first casualty of war is the truth.

The media always has a political bias. Nothing is ever completely true.

NATO and the Ukraine appear whiter than white. They aren’t. NATO went back on promises and was after moving up to the borders of Russia. We would then have nuclear missiles close to Moscow. Were the missiles a threat? Were they a deterrent? Was it defensive or offensive?

Depends which side of the fence you sit.

Ukraine does have a number of extreme right groups who could be described as neo-Nazis. There is evident racism. But then there is in most European countries – look at the fascist Oban in Austria and Trump in America.

Can anything justify war? I don’t think so. Putin is a barbaric animal who needs trying for war crimes – not just here but in Chechnya, Grozny and Aleppo. Then we have war crimes committed by the USA and UK in Afghanistan and Iraq. We have the warmongering Iranians, Saudi Arabians, not to forget Bashir and the bastions of terrorism.

All war criminals should be tried.

Beware the black and white.

Unfortunately this distrust of politicians and the media has led to the propagation of conspiracy on the web. People are even more susceptible to the stupid propaganda flung out on the web. It’s worse than the media bias.

Hence we end up with lying Trump, lying Johnson, lying Bolsonaro and lying Oban. The whole populist movement is based on fake news and conspiracy. Lying is their trade.

But always, the first casualty of war is the truth.

Poetry – We don’t need experts

The internet breeds nonsense!! It’s become a vehicle for conspiracy, propaganda and fake news. Ironically the ones making the loudest noise about fake news (like Trump) are the very ones pumping it out.

The gullible lap it up.

We don’t need experts

We don’t need science.

We don’t need experts.

We can just guess the truth!

They don’t know anything.

They always get it wrong.

We’ve got the proof!

They are trying to control us

With their fake news.

The agents from the Deep State.

We know the earth is flat

And men walked with dinosaurs

And that Trump is great.

We’ve got our guns

And the bible to lean on.

We’re not going to be told.

Who needs education?

Just educated fools.

The bible is our gold.

Poetry – Who is this?

Who is this?

Who is this full of fake news?

Spreading misinformation to confuse?

Sowing division, with a short fuse?

A man who has never paid his dues?

Who is this who loves himself?

Who only cares about his wealth?

Puts global warming on the shelf?

And cares not about the planet’s health?

Who cosies up to the NRA?

To Putin and Kim – to our dismay?

To evangelists and the KKK?

And doesn’t want the BLM to have their say?

Who is this who loves his power?

Surrounded by an ignorant shower?

Always lived in his ivory tower?

Making gaffes and nonsense by the hour?

Who is this king of fools?

Who never follows any rules?

With an empty head and lack of tools?

Pampered and privileged at the best schools?

I think I know!

Opher – 15.8.2020

Are we all completely mad? We trust the world to populist fools – narcissistic megalomaniacs who are in it for themselves – psychopathic sociopaths who don’t care a jot for anyone or anything.

The populist culture – feed the fear! Widen the division!! Stoke the hate!!

It’s the cash, right?

No it’s not! There’s much more than the cash. There’s the morality, the environment, health and equality. So much more.

They are siphoning off that cash into their own pockets.

These people are not emotionally, intellectually or psychologically fit to lead countries.

Poetry – I will tell you the truth.

I will tell you the truth.

I will tell you the truth.

We do not know what the truth is.

Everyone has a vested interest in a version of the truth.

They all want to fool us.

To manipulate us,

To convince us that they are right.

None of them are right.

Some believe they are right.

Some are sure they are right.

The truth is that we do not know what is right;

Nobody can be sure of anything;

We are all guessing.

Beware the people who believe they are certain.

They are the ones to be concerned about.

Some of them are very dangerous.

Many do not care about the truth.

They simply believe what they are told

Without question;

They accept that it is the truth.

Some manufacture their own truth.

They create stories, exaggerations, perspectives,

In order to control us.

For them the truth is malleable.

They think we are stupid

And will believe anything.

They feed us lies.

Once, long ago, I thought I knew the truth.

I was naïve.

All I understood was opinion.

I had not experienced how complex life was

Or how devious and cynical people could be.

I now know that everything is uncertain.

That is the truth.

Opher – 11.7.2020

We live in a world of fake news.

People are telling us they know the truth – the politicians, the religious leaders.

They know nothing.

Some believe what they are told in textbooks, in tabloids, on TV, in broadsheets or on the internet.

The information is always from people trying to sell you something.

I don’t want what they’ve got to sell.

They are selling you a version of themselves. They want you to believe. They want you to do what you are told. They do not want you to think.

The truth is that nobody knows.
