BBC Nation Speak Peace_

I hear BBC news,

it’s noise deluge,

speaking to me in my language, allegedly.

It spits out figures and gives no time to absorb,

spouting contention and arguments,

asking only select participants.

Reporting pain, and drain, negative views,

it’s hard for me to feel anything but confusion,

disorientation, and generalized hate.

That’s quite an achievement,

in this day and age,

fostering yet more rage.

Alas, how I miss what I thought used to be,

BBC news.

Whatever happened to “Nation speaking peace unto nation”?

TVs, Old-Stlye & Green Screens

So much bullshit,

but with enough elements of truth,

to convince

and scare you to the core.

This thing they present as factual entertainment,

wherein elaborate make-up and special effects,

in scope and scale,

are behind only actors’ pay,

advertizers’ money,

fabrications

and lies.

Steel Mill

Was life so bad before, lost time and place,

to willingly sacrifice my

mind, body, soul and face

to this false god?

Bogus American dream.

Black Square, Grunge Frame

Gutted…

eviscerated, complicated, violated,

overwhelmed by stimuli,

need peace,

shut eyes.

Yatseniuk in Rada

And the leaders decided to fuck with the people,

exploit, manipulate, violate.

They did it because they could,

and then some more,

it made them feel *so* good.

HMVS Cerberus, Musket Drills

So far, distant and perverse,

hysteria perverts.

Despite oceans of salt and bitterness,

cretins cling to loyalties, hatreds inbred.

Goodness, we never had,

the old days were just as bad.

Used Car Salesman (Blog2Cars.com.Ua)

 

I had escaped.

But by banality and “expediency”,

You pulled me back into captivity.

Responsibility and

fucked-up legality.

Shit car ownership.

RFERL Transmitters, Biblis, De, 2007

 

As the self-appointed “leader of the free world”,

you allow yourself certain liberties,

lies and perversions,

to serve what you call the greater good.

The “free market” decides,

capriciously,

self-servingly,

the direction of today’s morality.

In dollars and hubris you trust.

The newspaper’s full of lies,

sad surprise,

pretend integrity,

John Bull(shit),

bulwark of democracy,

deluding the masses

and buying

election victories

for the controlling classes,

puppet masters,

since the days of yore

and

forever more.

Honest John and other lies…

history teaches,

media, agendas,

delusions paralyze.
