A Free Press and Capitalism Are Not Compatible For Long

We rake the muck because we must
left to dry forgotten as dust

Yesteryears’ horrors reappear
remembered without proper fear

Doomed to repeat our sins of past
new evil comes worse than the last

Today’s news is lost tomorrow
uningrained on futures borrowed

Facts are picked to fit the story
endless bouts of rapturous whoring

Media discounts what won’t sell
where once truth ruled now markets tell

Press bought by the corporation
mute witness of a dead nation
