We are becoming submerged in a cacophony of news,
Each day the avalanche continues, many vibrant views,
Often exaggerated to whet our appetite
With opinions, unrelated to what is wrong or right.
No time for thoughtful discussion, of what really should be done
Before another deluge falls, the politics re-spun
Heads must roll, to say the least, or a scapegoat must be found
Reverse a policy decision? We never change our ground!
Cliché after cliché, but no-one cares a whit,
We’ve heard it all before, – believe not a word of it,
Yet still the repetitions, ‘We’re One Nation’ is their call,
But behind the wistful words, there is no plan at all!
