the scarier the news
the more i snooze,
but not you.
i know you watch the news
i can see it in your countenance.
you tried your dreams
i can see it on your face,
but then the news came on.
the stink of it befuddled you
you went on your merry way ignoring it
the news media is a horror joke
you know this truth, but who cares
i care, fear is the stone they throw
fear keeps us down
keeps the rich, rich
keeps the poor, poor
turn it on later, you’ll see.
all the worst stories splashing on the screens
screaming murders, crime
accidents, arguments, war,
disputes, polar opposites
crises, positioning, government power,
“the media” reports all this
fear model obeyed
the government does nothing
they love the quiet desperate masses.
what about God power
what about that
what about people buying power
what about the asleep masses waking up
what about starting a facebook group
and force them to their knees.
what about that?
we’re too busy watching the news.
violent tv shows, violent streaming videos,
this fear keeps us down, keeps us in the 9-5 paradigm
keeps the rich rich and keeps the poor poor
and the government allows it.
people go to work scared
never try their dreams
the fear engine growls all day
while we sip coffee and become more compliant.
i ignore the news. i laugh at them.
i only focus on my dreams.
i know that one razor blade in
a candy bar doesn’t mean
millions didn’t have fun on
hallowe’en, where is that story?
where is the fun in life if not on the tv?
real people being happy, where is that story?
what does happy people mean
to “the media”? People who buy more shit,
but the media is just too blind to see the profit
the masses are not dumbed completely down
we see this plot. and like in network, the movie,
“we’re tired and we’re not going to take it anymore.”
back off the fear model
run concurrent channels for crime and war and accidents
call it The Fear Channel.
Run all the happy stories everywhere else, we
want happy news and we are the masses
call it the Happy Channels.
Two streams of information, twice the revenue
that’s your goal right?
the enlightened can watch the happy channels
the unenlightened can watch the fear channel
i want my government to approve this.
why do i need to know who got arrested last night
or who got killed in a car accident? have a public safety network
for all the ugly news, we don’t want it.
put all the car ads on the fear network
and all the organic products on the happy networks
yet even today the government sits
idly by, quiet masses don’t mean dumbed down
i call upon the government to kill the fear news poverty cycle
let us get happy and back to our dreams
we’ll be happier and more profitable
happiness is our right
fear is the last resort by the rich
to keep us all poor and today it ends.
create the paralell news networks, we won’t eat
your shit anymore. signed the masses of the world.
