Heard some freakers talking ‘bout the movement,
talking like it was a thing alive
saying, "What's the movement up to lately?"
doin' up the current movement jive,

hoping there's a camera in the shadows
recording all their antiquated prose,
not caring if it's truth they shovel daily
only if their public's rating grows.

Any blemish real or just imagined
is focus for their spotlight's daily rage,
truth is less important than the talk shows
and a two inch column on their morning page;

as they speak the smoke around them thickens,
as facts become mirrored shades of lies,
all they require is our worshipful acceptance,
they seem to think they are gods in disguise.

So, just keep those contributions flowing daily,
seems to be the only message they can drive,
the world may go to hell in their new basket
but the movement died when it became alive.

There is a movement, of course, in the making and has already gotten a toehold. It is shoving their message down our throats as we speak.

You do the tongue in cheek so well.
Spot on, icebox.

Ahmen to that brother. I'm to young to have been a part of the original movement, but worked for a number of years in mass comm business. You hit it right on the head with this one. Thanks for sharing. Peace.
