FAKE NEWS, SCRIPTED VIEWS

FAKE_NEWS_SCRIPTED_VIEWS_X512.jpg

 

I write my fiction for the evening news 

The facts don’t make the story 

It’s what my bosses choose. 

Did you ever think the truth would lose? 

Read my scripted views!

 

Need an idea advanced 

Got an enemy to treat cruel?

Don’t worry , baby, I’ll fix your sinner soon, 

Just point me to the highest bidder. 

Turn us on and watch me! 

 

Lyin’ in the morning Lying next to noon, 

You’re trained to hear the TV ‘ accept it all as true. 

We know you love our twisted views.

Watch our fictioned news! 

 

Station after station when the night hour is near, 

The lights go up 

The actors appear. 

Different theme songs ring the same in your ears

It’s time for scripted views. 

“Listen to the buzz; we call it truth,
It’s not gossip if it’s on the evening news.
Someone said something, no proof. Welcome scripted news.”

 

It’s all the rage in Europe You better follow suit. 

Someone blew up a church.  A pariahs name is “proof.”

An old man dies, pillow on his face.

I’ll go ahead and write the script we’ll use

For the scripted news. 

 

No need to cry or bother feeling appalled, 

Since half of our stories never happened at all.

It’s just interesting when people lie, 

See our scripted views. 

 

A sultry bleach blonde, the screen to adorn.

She once was an actress in deviant porn,

we let her tongue cut men to the core, She gives twisted views.

A sugar coat, and then more lies yet, 

Sometimes her victims play hard to get. 

She’ll kill you if you second guess.

Need more scripted views.

 

Lyin’ in the morning Lying next to noon, 

You’re trained to hear the TV ‘ accept it all as true. 

We know you love our twisted views. 

Watch our fictioned news!

 

Go back to sleep 

Pretend we didn’t talk

You breathe a word I’ll outline you in chalk. 

You have no idea how much we hate you,

Leave me, don’t stalk 

See you on the next scripted news.
