Denial of Truth is a cancer
Denial of truth is a cancer
A vile scourge from the mouth of a liar
Dividing a land once free.
You choose what to believe
From the ones who deceive.
It’s all a political choice;
The truth a mere victim
Of those with the loudest voice.
The use of fake news
Now flavours your views.
You don’t believe your own eyes
You’d rather believe lies.
So get on your knees and rejoice!
The denial of truth is a cancer
The belief of a self-serving chancer,
A twisting of history,
Fascism no mystery,
Now a thing of the left.
We now live in a world built of lies,
Hating those we despise;
The truth a victim of theft.
The world – one great conspiracy
All a question of belief;
A gigantic hoax.
Hitler was a socialist
The earth is really flat
Truth nothing more than what it evokes.
We’d rather believe
What our neighbours believe
Than trouble ourselves with the truth.
So covid’s a lie
There’s no climate change
It’s a commie trick
Donald has all the proof!
The Whitehouse is run by lizards.
We’ve got to drain the swamp.
Though he’s scuttled with one point six billion
To keep him in his pomp,
We know he’ll make America great,
We wear the hat with pride!
When it comes to the final reckoning
He knows we’re on his side!
We don’t believe our own eyes.
We don’t agree with what we see.
We would rather believe the lies.
So America descends into a nightmare.
Osama Bin Laden won!
He tore apart the fabric;
The destruction has only begun!
The Taliban are laughing
As they drive the Americans out.
Their truth lies in a medieval book
Of that there is no doubt!
The truth is now a cancer!
All from the mouth of a chancer
Opher – 14.8.2021
I wrote this after listening to a Jonathan Pie tirade. Trump has created a monster that is destroying the fabric of society, undermining truth, demeaning science and experts and throwing America back into an age of darkness and superstition.
They’d rather believe in a fake story than see what is happening before their eyes. So the election was stolen, the storming of the Capitol a commie plot, 9/11 was set up by the CIA and Democrats eat babies.
Trump has opened Pandora’s box in order to plunder for his own ends. Now the stupid are spouting his lies. The evil has been let loose.
How Can You Tell?
How can you tell which side you’re on?
Reading between the lines
When you only know what you are told
Even when reading between the lines
Refugees and soldiers
Are running between the lines
While faceless men pull the strings
Politicians print designs
In the politics of what is real
They manipulate the news
War, Religion and Science
You get what it is you choose
Who writes the spaces
Between the lines
That we think we read?
Who puts ideas into the heads
of him and you and me?
I’m only reading between the lines
Sifting through the lies
Searching for a fact
That’s wearing heavy disguise
Evading all the mines
While the truth is still intact
Reading between the lines
Through the fiction of the fact
It is becoming increasing hard to know how much of what you think and what you believe is a product of the time you live in, a manipulation by the unseen taste-makers, or a sincerely held view of your own.
No Scientific fact will last.
Religion is a distortion of history.
Kosovo is being attacked by Nazi Nationalistic Serbs, guerrilla freedom fighters, power mad, self-interested Americans with their lackeys, or Albanian terrorists. It is all a question of perspective and political manipulation. The refugees are fleeing NATO bombing or Fascist Serbian ethnic cleansing. The Serbians are defending their territory against terrorist nationalistic Albanian separatists or attacking defenceless Muslims and Croats.
We think we know who is carrying out the genocide but we’re not there in the thick of it. We only have sanitised news.
But who has the self interest? Who stands to gain? Who pulls the strings? Who is insane?
