Fallacies fly across airwaves again,
Foreign policies broadcast day and night,
Newspeak rife, failure spun as success,
Witness chronic analysis abuse,
Across the mainstream media platforms.
Bombers for democracy gain traction,
Extreme centrists cloaked up in denial,
Former leaders praised up for their actions.
Arms contractors have stuffed themselves with gold,
Blood and treasure, of which we’re seldom told,
Truth now one more propaganda victim,
Reality swamped by fake journo lies.
This the twenty first century pity,
No-one accepts responsibility.
Harry Rogers, in the Red Bedroom, 22nd August 2021
