Poems

Insatiable Appetites

We are being fed
With a steady diet
Of falsehoods,
Manufactured truths,
And lies.

This colourful
Enhanced imagery
Strikes all our senses,
Hour after hour
Till we succumb—
Completely addicted.

Our ravenous hunger
Demands more of the same,
And they gladly
Feed us some more
Entertainment.

Look around to see
If anything
Makes you
Lose your appetite anymore.

Hatred, venom,
Bigotry, bias
Everything is ingested
Without even a burp.
