Fear of Everything

Fake news – the buzz that

Eats away at our wellbeing

Attacking our thought processes and

Ruining our sense of perspective.

 

Of course, we could switch off

For the sake of humanity.

 

Each of us has responsibility –

Vandalism of our inner resources

Endangers the human species

Ruling us as much as any despot.

Young brains are malleable

Twisting into shapes that destroy

Hope and create depression and despondency.

I have no love of the status quo, but

No positive change is built without conscious foundation.

Goodness must be nurtured, and this takes focus and love.

  1. Fake news’ seems to have taken on a life of its own. It used to mean palpably untrue. Now it seems to mean something that’s true but unpalatable to subject being reported on
