INSURRECTION MIND MASSAGE

Coups and insurrections, all plotted up
Over years of greasy mind massages,
Tweeted to hungry, fevered, acolytes,
All eager to have their prejudices
Polished, and honed, by the demagogue.
Lies are tools in this faux relationship,
Poisonous slogans, memes and banners,
Disseminated by Potus four five,
Infected social media for years,
Encouraged growth of nazi militia,
Fanned the flames of vile racist terror groups,
Stormed the Capitol in fake show of strength.
How strong the constitution? Can it hold?
How much storytelling is left to be told?

Harry Rogers, in the Yellow Room, 13th January 2021.
