10: Fake Democracy

The unkempt acceptance of perception
Commences scripted manipulations,
Moulding democracies to perversion,
Rigging up corporate-frigging systems
From funded think-tanks bias spins on bribes,
Political parties help’d to power,
So back-scratch tax-breaks & havens make slaves
Of those whose personal data, en masse
Bought up, studied, to trigger loyalties
With well-timed headlines, blanket coverage
Of insidious, brain-washing bullshit,
While any sense of proper importance
Ignored, brushed over, given bullish spin,
Especially those Roman triumph thrills
Of election times’ pretended freedom,
For in the eyes of certain secret clubs
We all are cattle, dumb, for the market,
Sold & slaughter’d for ravenous gullets
& when we all go tripping to the booths
To place a cross by someone else’s name,
Signing away our rights to question curs
With the cross’d mark of the illiterate;
& never universal anyway!
Some disenfranchis’d, some dissillusion’d
& some just plain denied the so-call’d vote,
While slavemasters sat at varnish’d tables,
By bolster’d wrong-doings feel constant Gods.
