A short poem totally related to the campaigns of disinformation to which we have been subjected since the start of the Russo-Ukrainian War. Hopefully it will end soon, and we can get back to hearing opposing views on mainstream media…although I’m sure that the warmongers will find a replacement theory.
How their mighty minds meander
These self-styled interpreters of invasive intelligence
Along the paths of all-pervasive propaganda
Whose purpose is to promote belittling belligerence!
Truth is not something which disturbs their vision
All dissenters from their narrative are treated with derision
Oh, these righteous reporters of erroneous reality
Who maintain that free speech is a principle they favour
Who show delight at any news of enemy fatality
Yet from the official narrative they never waver
Patriotism for them is simply evermore war
The fight is what they are fighting for!
And they call others naive – those who refuse
To accept opinions of journalists who treat them as fools
Who do the bidding of governments who wish to abuse
Their power – of which these mouthpieces are tools
They broadcast delusions to which we must never pander
Lest we become proponents of their propaganda
