nothing to be done
to be sure it’s public int’rest
yet the newsreels just won’t run.
This is our bleeding country,
majority just as poor
as back then in the decades
since the Thatcher years abhorred.
Modern days are not enlightened
in these Dark Ages whence we strive
from manipulated mainstreams
truths from the Media to derive.

Apologies for absence! This poem starter has been inspired by the mindboggling situation of UK human rights abuses, the media manipulations/mediablackout and circumstances around political imprisonment of a Nottingham woman, a crucial witness to a necessary child abuse inquiry. #freemelanieshaw
