Cultural materialism as a propagandist tool
to identify a race as unique and superior
to other tribes. To die for your culture
commands great posthumous reward;
an icon to rally ideological bias around.
To infest and invest political ideologies
in our soul’s expression is criminal.
Inculcation through colour, notes, rhythm and words
by the elite controllers of collective thought;
news with subliminal persuaders, coalesce thought,
a pulse clot of paralysis of personal ideas, opinion and analysis.
Contemporary instance, media’s strangle hold
of political mendacity regarding Russia’s
‘atrocious’ invasion of the Ukraine
What over-seasoned pie in the sky
are we expected to swallow?
