Assumptions! Rumored To Allege



To pledge one's devotion,
And loyalty to stay a faithful gossiper...
Is how division and conflicts,
Successfully start to rip apart relationships.
Between neighbors, friends and families.
This is as an American way of life,
As bigotry and racism is denied.
Although witnessed and observed.
Watching grandma remove,
A store bought apple pie out from the oven.
Everywhere to have it served.

Hey!
It is what it is.

Expecting to be treated disrespectfully?
With an appetizing of rudeness to receive?
Before the main delivery of evilness,
Comes to defend...
One's entitlement of free speech.
To do to whomever whatever they please?

Oh, oh...say can you see,
Beyond your fantasies.

Then...
With a doing to assume,
Rumors to have heard unsubstantiated.
Although gossiped to allege and believe.
Have got to be made up and not true.
Since someone seen imitating reality.
On TV.
And dressed masquerading,
Like no other clown around found.
Has got to be honest.
As all their picked leaders should be.
Because no one in their right conscious mind,
Would support and endorse...
Anyone to reprepresent their interests.
If discovered to be a deceiver who frauds.
Without evidence or proof of it,
Revealed to see on TV!

Where truth as real as possible to believe,
Can be relied upon to follow to repeat it.
On the streets to ensure,
Commitment to conformity is cemented.
Forevermore. And...
God forbid,
Should never be considered fictioned.
Or thought to be less than genuine!

'I...uh...
What did you just say?'

'I said...
If it was not to be believed,
Why call it 'Reality TV'?
And besides...
Who would believe anyone,
Using the media purposely to benefit...
Their own selfish need to have their ego,
Massaged everyday to exploit...
People fed nonsense from a narcissistic mind?

And not know,
Which makes no sense at all...
They have been,
Not only deceived but also manipulated.
With a craving for more on a daily basis too?

This...
Is unpatriotic.
That is un-American.
This is...
The ultimate of hoodwinking.
Who is behind the spreading of these lies?!'.
