Weapons of War

PR has now been weaponized in the fight
of politics between the left and right.
Did they do it? Did they not? The camera knows
what we don't know, the camera sees and shows.

Does he look smug? Did he look scared, what were their
thoughts while standing there? Does anyone care?
Kids are kids but they've been taught no right from
might, react from thought, and the message comes

through spin and press and those with the means to pay.
The shouting voices drown out love today.
