Searching for truth

Little mouse
crawling on the floor
endlessly searching for a scrap
of the truth
stuck inside a booth
projecting an agenda
at the speed of light
for the elite
to the masses
staring at screens
unable to scream
break free of the illusion
the intrusion
dissolution of creative thought
the power
to instigate change
In the hands of those
wishing to sell
frivolous commodities
artificial realities
Intelligence sold
in sound bites
spliced
between
coke commercials
sprinkled with Splenda
