ever hear the phrase....

By muckraker

ever here the phrase 'don't believe everything that you read?' i'm here to tell you the real deal: don't believe anything at all that you see on TV. If it happens to be true than its most likely there to distract you from the real deal, what really goes on. emergency powers since just after Carter, Cold War law in effect, security checks...freedom means more to me than security although only in a governmental sense. if its a girlfriend i'm the opposite, paradoxical. there are no paradox's check your premises. and your promises. are you crazy or confused? irritated or mildly amused? which is it or is it somewhere in the middle, extremes often blind us as the media-ogre culture keeps us bored. I'd rather be blind and know something than eyes glazed lackadaisical, complacent, and bored, gossipping about the stock prices, gamboling, throwing dices, throwing away lifes for a visceral meat market 'reality' show. pretending to others that your the man in the know....when all you really do is search through flows and find the nodes...so? woah,
where's this poem goin?

    Or as they say on the x-files, "trust no one", it's good advice never to believe anything except for your instincts

    I liked the whole idea or the thought of the piece, it invoked an anger many of us have regarding the bullshit we see and hear every day spouting from the mouths of those in a position of authority. I had a hard time with the flow of it and thought if more attention were given to line breaks it would make a good poem even better. Attention to line breaks (in my opinion) naturally force the reader to stop at strategic points and lend meter and flow. Anyway I really liked what you have to say...I like your screen name also, it goes perfectly with this piece.
