The Daily Scum, Part 2


The readers of the Daily Scum
Take in its every word
With such apparent trust that
Seems to appear absurd
While the Proprietor of The Daily Scum
Routinely distorts the News
To represent and support
His near Fascist Views.

Amongst the sex, sport and gossip
Hidden deep down in there
The dedicated searcher may find
A grain of truth hidden somewhere.
And the Proprietor of The Daily Scum
From the sanctity of his Ivory Tower
Daily extends his tentacles
To wield his enormous power.

There seems to be no limit
To the depths it will sink
To exercise control over
The way it's readers think.
Governments rise and fall
In this constant Media Age
Depending on if they
Can retain its patronage..

Power so immense that
That the Plutocracy know
Support  from The Daily Scum
Will help maintain the Status Quo
I'm looking forward to that day when,
The scales fallen from readers eyes,
Will  come  that eventful time
When The Daily Scum finally dies.
