Subliminal advertising, yellow journalism, and lies
Running rampant, the apex of much ill gotten news
Television, radio, newspapers and in cyberspace too
They bank on the vulnerable, weak, and desperate
Dumbing us down, feeding us lies like candy
So much truth and detail is often left out
Of what an issue is really, really all about
It's not about caring, empathy, or our health
It's power, greed, and personal wants, by stealth
It's never so simple as 'black and white'
Our best defense is to find a back-door way
To find the truth, the facts, to be able to learn
Not just their questionable 'black and white',
But the truth - not only black or white,
But all the shades of grey!
