Sometimes I wonder if Big Brother is real,
that television is there not to entertain
but to dumb us down and convince us
of what’s right and what’s wrong
even though we sense inside us
that what they say is right and wrong
is not right or wrong at all
but programming that makes our lives
empty of right and wrong.
When the news guy comes on
and tells me something I know is a lie,
I wonder who has told him to tell me this lie
and what other lies he’s told that I took for truths
because I never caught him in a lie before.
