Unsocial Media

Misinformation? Let’s lie to the nation
We’ll fact check the shit out of this.
So tell me, since when must I temper my pen?
Don’t you think that you’re taking the piss?

With fake news (or lies)
This is how freedom dies
With a whimper (and no it’s no prank)
We’ll be muzzled by wankers who can’t stand the truth.
And the writers page ends up as blank.

Today needs no muse to report on the news that conforms to the left or the right.
It’s better to ogle the suns page three girls.
And I really detest that old shite.

We live our lives daily, I know.
But it’s mainly a quick look at media tripe.
We cherry pick only the news that we now won’t offend us or give us a gripe.

Can we trust what we’re told?
As a headline unfolds and the truth becomes wrapped in a lie.
It’s a new way of life. Yes, we’ve peaked at our heights
So we sit back and calmly comply.
