Nothing But Bad News - Poem by Joseph DeMarco

Nothing but bad news.
The media manipulates,
A master mind scheme,
To scare and scar.
The truth is twisted and traversed.
The rich reek their wrath,
Upon us all.
Special interest groups
and carnivorous corporations,
Puppeted by petty politicians,
Ploy for power.
It matters not which you choose,
Both belong to them.
Public pressure produces nothing,
Money makes this machine move,
Demolishing democracy in its path.
The system is shaken,
The people want to take the power back,
If they would only wake-up.
