HOW CAN WE TELL ANYMORE?

Reality, so easily transformed,
Perceptions nipped, tucked, manipulated.
Politicians, artists, tricksters,
each day,
Glide effortlessly between truth and lies.
How gullible, accept artificial
Replicants that live fake lives behind screens,
On screens, in front of screens, beyond the screens.
Immersed in games that shake life foundations.
Android companions now cherished daily,
Truth is irrespective in brave new world,
Millions live virtually, revved up
In Avatar existences, fed by
Rich cast iron blockchain cyber junkies,
Who care not one jot for consequences.

Harry Rogers, in the Red Bedroom, 12th March 2021
