NEWS OF THE WORLD
Flash of remembrance on a start again day
the crumbling of memory, time fades away,
the dominant discourse is undoubtedly drear,
the rolling of thunder, the future speaks clear.
Mesmerised masses accept news of the day,
never question those who hold sway,
woke intelligentsia virtue-signal it's true,
they tear up the debt that we owe to the few.
So many people lost, lonely, confused
don't recognize the country they see on the news:
the violence, the murders, leave them cold and alone,
common decency fled from the place they called home.
