Assault On The Senses

A bombardment of pictures,

an assault of ‘news’;

an attack on all senses

to target our views.

Propaganda’s the weapon,

it’s all in those words,

determining how any

facts will be heard.

A slant to the right

or a tilt to the left,

is there any truth

or is it factual theft.

Trying to sift it,

to find out what’s true,

a mammoth task

when so much is untrue.

Fictions are in costume,

dressed up as fact;

trying to discern which --

a juggling act.

Did he do this?

Did she say that?

It’s so hard to tell what

the media’s spat.

Sense is over-whelmed,

it’s too much of a strain

to take it all in

without going insane.
