Information that is spread

For the purpose of promoting a cause.

That's called propaganda

In hopes it will give people pause.

It doesn't need to be true.

The gullible will always believe.

They'll swallow it up and digest it

Then spread it easily.

The illiterate and uneducated

Are excellent targets no doubt.

They'll spread it like a virus

Without knowing what it's about.

Scare tactics their greatest weapon

Mass hysteria runs amok.

A frightened uninformed public

Feels as if they're stuck.

In the midst of a drama

They will then take up the cause.

Like sheep led to slaughter

They'll forsake all the flaws.
