Distorted radio for distorted voices

Distorted radio for distorted voices

A hateful, little man,

given the mic,

screams at the world,

lambasting those

he dislikes,

name calling those

he loathes.

***

Tinfoil warrior

poisons the mind

with flat-Earth theories

and snake-oil

vitamins

he’s hawking for a fortune…

Or two.

***

They yell and scream

about some socialist regime,

while having fascist dreams.


***

All the while, there are those

that cling to their words

Ready to go.

Ready to act

upon the words

of these cons.


***

These distorted voices,

flooding the airwaves

with vile and hate,

mixed in with

nonsense.


***

All the while,

their minions are

clawing for more

to affirm nefarious truths

they possess.


***

The mess these voices

have brought:

distrust,

hate,

fear.


***

How will this end?

***

It can

when these minions

wake up from the delusional

drivel these voices push.


***

And turn off that radio.

Turn off that podcast

and let that poison die

in the white noise of

radio static.
