The news; A window on the world
With clouded glass. Man's craving
For knowledge comes to a point when
Powerful political people
Of a 'plainly politic position'
Take it into their own hands
To manufacture knowledge,
To brainwash the curious cats,
To cloud the glass.
Conflicting sound from two TV screens
Each with their unique take on the scene
Both the same pictures, not the same sound,
"20 are injured"; "6 hit the ground".
What to believe, and what to dismiss? How
Can the indivdual grains of sand
That make up this clouded window
Be sifted through
To find what is pure, honest, true, And what
Needs to be thrown away; what impurities
Should be removed
To make the window clear once more.
Only then can we truly see
The true extent of the casualty.
