MEDIA MOGULS AND THEIR FRIENDS... JULY 8TH,2013
MEDIA MOGULS AND THEIR FRIENDS July 8th 2013
When the elite media moguls help their elite friends,
And announce in their pages about the latest trends,
And as an observer you can watch their buildings go up to the sky,
No binding referendums for you and you’re never told why.
Sometimes the media mogals want us to have a war,
Or join some ongoing war which is away over there far,
Or maybe have a drug-addict injection site or two,
No changes to the Charter and no death-with-dignity for you.
And the next thing we find; we’re in some war over there,
We’re not sure which side we’re on so say a prayer,
Because we have a highway of heros for when they come back dead,
Media moguls and politicians know so there’s no need for us to dread.
