Media messaging can be a depressing thing,
News writers are on the scene,
Covering how bodies bleed,
In public riot, or place of peace,
Masked are their identities,
Communicate the people will,
Tweet until the passing bills,
Distraction is what its become,
Bombings of the Boston run,
CNN has failed again,
Id rather turn off the Television,
When people go to search for truth,
The internet is where Im tuned,
Provide the images,
To feed us news that isnt dry,
The peoples camera never lies,
The people have been innocent in this time,
All the rage thats staged within,
Can breed an age of revolution,
Make amends with all the Hate,
To see where it originates,
Its easy to control the masses,
By Digital or printed actions,
To feed corporate vultures,
Interject themselves in oval office!
Where has the country gone?
Where is George Washington?
Stand in hope and go against,
Fix our broken government,
The mess we’re in is very steep,
Facebook’s turned us all to sheep,
Limit abuse is what we need,
and Sustain a focus on air we breathe.
This lyrical piece is textual based. Its a free verse poem using internal and line ending rhyme schemes. The idea of this piece is to communicate to the masses that while all of the things in the media seem to be important, some things are not as they appear, to question information, government, and leadership in constructive ways. Concluding the free verse is thoughts of sustainability and pioneering.
