Poem - Mr. Mallory and the News

The world is full of messages about life. The sum total is a contradictory mess of self-serving blathering. Mr. Mallory steps into this despairing soup and keeps his wits!


Mr . Mallory and the News
Poem for Day 009 - 20141002

Mr. Mallory was no stoop.
He read the paper and watched the news.
Mr. Mallory knew the truth
told by those none could recuse.
His head filled since youth,
by sources he'd not abuse.

Fox TV
Holy Church
CNN
School
NPR
Political Parties
BBC
Government

Mr. Mallory's world was betrayed.
Contradictions manifested.
The glossy veneer stripped away.
His sources were scandalous.
Their narratives led astray,
strident mutterings blasphemous.

Lies
Spin
Propaganda
Agenda
Disinformation
Advertising
Scandal
Highest Good

Mr. Mallory did not panic.
He read the paper and watched the news.
He was part of this large mechanic:
an individual with no excuse.
After all, life is organic,
the outcome he could choose.
