Divide And Conquer

DIVIDE AND CONQUER

Spring demonstrations
Like the wind in the willows
Rattle state troopers

His Master’s Mask

HIS MASTER’S MASK

Dark money deep state
Terminal disconnection
Time to wake up, dears

Silicon Valet

SILICON VALET

First they will addict you
Then up and up the price
Believe me this is not
A train you want to ride

Dire Legacy

DIRE LEGACY

Clearly then no one is here now
‘cept for I to be here as if for you

As if in need of a handy whipping boy
(Work with me here, work with me)

To go tick all the proffered boxes
Catch a breath and run like hell

Happy 2019 everyone! 🙂

The Misdirection

THE MISDIRECTION

There is what we knew
And there is what we were taught
They are not the same

24-Hour News (29b)

24-HOUR NEWS

Handpickled
Distortions meant to
Convince us
We know best
Tapered, tampered, distempered
Not breaking, broken

Shadorma November

Ho-hum (12c)

HO-HUM

Poppy Day
A century since
Years later
Orwell coined
“War is peace” and “Doublethink”
Today: normalised

Shadorma November

Oh Media Mania’s Puny Hum

OH MEDIA MANIA’S PUNY HUM

Illusion within
Illusion masquerading
As reality
I interrupt this broadcast
With breaking news of silence

Group-think Doesn’t Just Happen

Please do remember this next time you’re watching “the news” and similar broadcasts. (If you still bother.) And it’s also pretty funny. 🙂
