Propaganda Machine

Publicity in the media, hear ye;
Rhetoric gushing forth merrily;
Outrageous in subtle lies,
Popular  in speeches, but no surprise;

Damning every careful study and tax,
Asking for funds and loyalty--how lax.

Making an issue of all freedom and rights;
Attacking all sources of keen insights,
Censoring reforms and better minds;
Hatching plots to deceive most kinds.
Insisting the Constitution allows self-defense;
Never conceding selfish interest is not good sense.
Everlasting scholarship exceeds recompense. .
