Disenfranchised

Coverage is imperative

In marketing a notion

Total spectrum dominance

Imperial promotion

Supplication to control

Demanding our devotion

With everyone to play their role

Expanding locomotion

But, of course, to sell it hard

It can’t be all one-sided

Heroes must be battle scarred

So options are provided

Different names on the punch-card

To sway the undecided

Hoist them up on their petard

And shepherd the misguided

Palliate the disenfranchised

The promise of a leftist voice

Validation self-aggrandized

With the illusion of choice

Where our sad thinking is flawed

Once again embrace the fraud

Overcome the lies of God

Mediocrity applaud

Assholes arouse accolade

Raw sewage divining rod

Fools fueling the fusillade

Fuckers flaunting farce façade

Politics as cattle prod

With our definitions broad

Stories spared Scheherazade

The time has come for firing Squad

Palliate the disenfranchised

The promise of a leftist voice

Validation self-aggrandized

With the illusion of choice
