Mass Media, Do Not Swallow

News Time

Long ago, news
Only happened on tele
A few times a day
Each channels news
Was a bit different
Common stories
Of just what we
Needed to know
Someone approving
Each focus and perspective
We watched a multitude
Of what someone’s
Perception of what we needed
But then came entertainment
News and then all day news
These brought in more
Group opinions of what
We, as viewers, were
To see and believe
And now with personal
Videos and the ability
To publish ourselves
We can bring the truth
Or at least our perception
Of the truth to light
No longer victims
But survivors with
Stories to tell…
Let us create
Common stories
