The Censor

The Censor

The news today, so they say, is quite frivolous concerning hearsay. (intolerant)
They’ll no doubt misprint, to make mint, of all terrible incident. (relevant)
Words are chosen carefully, to guide the mind in urgency, towards conformity. (normalcy)
Deftly distracted from what matters, in format of idle chatters, leaving truth in tatters. (bringing you, important, drivel)
They’ll work up a scare, and present as if they care, of anything besides flair. (cliff sheer, because)

Nothing that’ll incite, will be permitted to write, we’ve kept it hidden from sight. (considered trite)
Nothing pornographic, latest reports on traffic, we’ll stick with the classics. (drastic)
Nothing self-degrading, the masses need persuading, got to keep up the ratings. (personal, people, religion, acceptance)
Nothing artistic, or to be interpreted, we’ll do the thinking for you. (abstract, fact-checking)
Nothing but tragedy, for all eyes to see, as this is reality.

The reader is a whore, who’ll always come back for more, to keep up their social décor. (galore)

More Poetry…

Echoes Along Some Strewn Shore

Waves crash and crawl along a strewn shore…

Sugar

Sprinkling down side edge of mug,
white droplets crystal twunkle in morning sun…

Crystal Stream

It lives.
Lake water lapping along low strides longing for an estranged sea,
a tear-soaked mother turned face away from desperate plea…
