The Instigation

Report Story

Talking Faces

It is the instigation

Of the masses into classes

In order to segregate and

create hate among the races

By all of the media's pretty painted

talking faces.

It is their intent to draw our attention away

With deception and misdirection.

So they can pontificate and infuriate

With conviction beyond suspicion.

They fabricate and exaggerate

In order to create friction and division.

They moralize while exploiting our lives

And sensationalize with their lies.

They are the purveyors of our destruction,

The self-appointed ministers of our lives.

Their gospel is their biased views

Sold to us as the nightly news.
