The Mainstream Is Polluted Poem by Ruby Honeytip

The Mainstream Is Polluted

Rating: 4.9

'Hey, over here! '
Said the road less followed
'Here is the antidote,
For the lies you have swallowed.
It's not your fault,
Your instincts were diluted,
You were thinking from the Mainstream,
Which is deeply polluted.
The lies in this stream,
Will not keep you afloat,
Heavy untruths have been jammed
Down your throat.
Banksters, Media Hounds, Pharmaceutical lice
All swimming in lies
Screaming 'take my advice'
Backpaddle and see it,
For all that it's not,
This poison will blind you,
Free thoughts left to rot.
Turn off your tv,
Pull out the plug,
Stop reading the news,
Stop taking their drugs.
Pick up your book,
And rest your back on a tree
The world wide webs in nature
Will return you to simplicity'
A smart little cookie
Was this road travelled not,
A timely reminder
Of what logic forgot.

when we are living in the border less world, we get so much information through these modern gadgets. without these, we may be less informed. we can watch the news and other informative channels once in a while. We are no more living in the previous century to rely on books only! I agree with one of your points that we have to go closer to the nature!

The road less traveled made all the difference, said Frost and Ruby-so right! . A straight forward, hard hitting and truthful write, right on target

Its a drug I find dangerously overabundant and insanely overbearing, the mainstream is polluted and overpopulated with people allergic to common sense, bang on Ruby comedy and social commentary in equal measure a fun read, and a bril write.

Read and liked the rather cryptic write, cryptic because of the comments I read… Most readers have found in it nature…. Unh unh… :) Its more then meets the casual eye. I see in it………..some serious counsel and course correction advice…put very well indeed. Bravo!
