Spin Doctors

Post modern soothsayers
turning lies into truth
Incompetence into
misunderstood genius
spinning, spinning, spinning,
day and night
weaving mixed messages and half truths
spinning common straw into uncommon gold
Corporate owned media
angling, fishing, predicting, 24/7
non-stop, over clover and under cover,
finally, a metamorphous achieved:
From bungling idiot, into mistaken, taken for granted
Good ole boy, president Bush.
Died in the wool,
insightful complex visionary
from shame to fameā€¦.
and lame to gain, it is a miracle!!
Lead to gold
Democracy merely an illusion
the truth, what about the truth?
Spin doctors watch their spinning wheel go round and round
never touching the ground
quick silver spin
They really like to watch them spin
There’s much spinning to do
They are tops at spinning the truth.
