The media record plays

Over and over

Round and round

Telling us what to think

Telling us what to scream

Ignorant souls vying for

The next big story

Painting illusions

To grab our attention

Sensationalizing the smallest things

Until they no longer satisfy

Our need to hear dirt

To roll around in it

Like swine in a trough

Hungry for the next batch of slop

The media pours it on

Graduating to bigger things

Manufactured mobs

Stirred by the spinning media record

Playing never ending slurs

Against humanity

And still we eagerly listen

As their filth tickles our ears

E.A. Fussell
