We've Been Programmed

We've Been Programmed

A Poem by Nevone Blount

The box
has found its way
into every home

creeping in unannounced
like field mice
in the prairie

We have come to worship
its fables not knowing how
to discern truth from lies

Show us
Inform us
Control us

Brainwashing propaganda
given in the form
of information

Tipping the scales
in high definition

WARNING

The program
that you are
about to consume
will consume you first

Viewer discretion is advised
