Media Truths....Byron Sonnet

A Tap dance on the written word,
Readings woven creating a snare
Ignoring the desire to lay truth bare
Instead lie about events occurred.
Paragons of truth now speak absurd
Catching the unwary in vacant stare
And non essentials until they swear
That black is white and was preferred.
Games are crueler than those of youth
Now the innocent has become the prey.
And the innocents have to dig for proof
Phones are tapped in the name of what
Whilst justice does the innocent betray
But now the media are getting their lot.
