homework 1.4.19 ( media lies )

Post by Neville Briggs » Sun Mar 31, 2019 11:09 am

MEDIA TRUTH

A gang most evil stalks the land,
We must be brave and take a stand.

They’re saying things that raise offence
And there’s no need for evidence
Of character or motivation,
Offence will prove their condemnation.

Let’s have no doubt, it must be true;
You heard it here on Channel 2.

Am I detecting a smidge of cynicism there Neville? :lol: Short, sharp and to the point though (sadly) Well done.

I may not always succeed in making a difference, but I will go to my grave knowing I at least tried.

Maureen, in all the booing and snarling about things said, nobody seems to raise the question " is what they say, true "

As George Orwell said " In an age of deception to speak the truth is a revolutionary act "
