The Team That Can'T Talk Straight - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

'First you say you do,
Then you don't,
You're undecided now,
What are you going to do? '

So we have mouthpieces that spew
What is happening - the latest new(s) .
Until it's found that it is just a lie
So what to do, live or die?

Naw, they just spin another
Knowing that it doesn't really matter
For facts are only as they see them
And can be changed on a moment's whim.

Problem is that their fearless leader
Is into the fix, for he's just another 'mudder'
Spreading what he thinks the public wants to hear
And if reality gets in the way, change the story - clear?

Those about him aren't going to make a move
Unless he alone does approve
So they take each uttered word
As if from some golden tongued god.

And as each is way beyond his element
The results are self-evident
Fact and fiction merge into one
As they seek the best rhyming tone.

You're undecided now
What are you going to do?
