A New Deadly Strain of Covid 19 Emerges in Botswana

 At last, hooray, oh happy day,

We’ve got a scapegoat we can trust,

Just as the virus slipped away,

We found a new, old way to thrust

Our narrative back to the top,

Of news agendas, it won’t flop,

We’ll cause the maximum disgust,

We’ll bait the public, chase their clicks,

We’ll link new germs to filthy blicks. 


South Africa could go on new red travel list as early as TOMORROW

Astroturf

  


Grass has no roots, these days, ‘cause ‘climate change’

We only have the plastic, fake sort now, 

Nicely edged and neat, no need to mow.

Ironically it’s made from fossil fuel,

It’s ‘green’ in that it could not feed a cow,

Yet flourishes in clouds of fresh, hot air,

You know it’s ‘real’, you see it everywhere

And hear it whispering its lies,

Tellin’ the sheep what aint so.


Grass has no roots these days,

It carpets floors in power’s corridors

But there are those

So taken in by this fake green, that they protest,

Convinced, they are themselves sincere,

They push rebelliously at open doors,

And tell the state to act on what it knows,

And what it knows is astroturf, 

Fertilised with bullshit, with the power to distort,

The deep fake movement that it grows

In order to convince itself it has support

For decisions it has made, which cost us dear.
