Trust in words


Power of the press
What is written must be true
Sage advice or no?

What is truth these days?
Raving politicians shout
Sprouting discontent

Suspect voices hoarse
Spreading lies, chain reaction
Bags of fear let loose

Promising so much
The voters simply doubtful
So they veer away

Same lies told over
Rank stench of distrust abounds
Only iceberg's tip seen

  1. The truth is within, Old Egg... hidden, distorted, altered in someway, but it's within. Apparently.

  2. Yes, the tip of the iceberg. I recognize the truth when I hear it. Lies have been weaponized to confuse and undermine truth.

  7. I remember ages ago when I actually put faith in the written word. But it was never more than another way to talk.
