The Disinformation Age

Skimming the water
And scamming the
Globe, the internet
Has imploded into
A bleak dark hole.

Corruption has found
Its way in, misdirection
And spin, from the Age
Of Enlightenment to the
Disinformation Age we

Are now wallowing in.
So thin our environment
That it fits in our hand.
So little the requirement
To fully comprehend.

For knowledge is power
And power is feared by
Those holding power to
Keep the masses unclear
And discombobulated

And cowering in fear.
