News For Sale. Watch and Read

News For Sale

Ink Overflow, Thank you for having me.

“News For Sale!”, “News For Sale!”
‘I have a story here Sir.
Concerning your institution.
It should be airing today,
But, it is for Sale.’

“News for. Sale, News. For Sale”
‘I have some photos here Sir,
Set for the printer.
But I have bigger problems at home.
Been working this job, January to winter.
But they they still will not give me a raise.
So, if you think you could sort me out quicker,
I’m sure we can silence the slaves.’

“News for. Sale, News. For Sale!”
How are we to know what is going on!?
When the records are burned at the press?
You! Who sells out the country, then gets shocked by images coming from CNN and BBC.
Should be sold too.
For what you sell us out for.
Or more likely

Invisible fingers trace boundaries to our knowledge.
As they steal us, with psychological captivity, In ignorance not stupidity, so we, should name and shame these folk. Who successfully imprison our thoughts.

Who are you?!
Who sells my news?
I’d like to know your name.
I would like to remind you,
We have children too.
Does that price tag cover your blame?
This is no Game!!
Where is my cut?
From the pain that you shame?

We turn in reverence to the news.
To be told of others views and shoes.
Please tell us all of the truth.
You have the opportunity to be a modern hero.
If you lose that aim.
All of us lose.

Dear Journalist,
We know the world is full of walls.
But there will be real hope, for a truly free country,
If we can count you as one of We.
