‘Fake News’ & ‘Life’ by Craig Sidell

soft cartel april 2018

Fake News

Hallucinogenic waves of information

Colliding head on with brainwaves of consternation

Targeted bullets of propaganda

Delivering fresh bamboo to the panda

Heated debates of inconsequential matter

I’ll take the former, you take the latter

Kernels of truth put through a grinder

Choice chopped meat, fees for the finder

Media agnostically designed

To completely overload your mind

Roots of the redwood destroying the road

Heads of the Hydra, watch them grow

Drowning in a sea of plastic trash

Like a Phoenix rising from the ash

Hear ye, hear ye, read all about it

The news is here, can’t live without it


Hi egg, sperm here, whaz up?

Bam! I bet you didn’t see that coming.

Hey, I’m stuck. Get me outta here!

What’s happening? I’ve got a splitting headache.

You want a piece of me? Huh?

I feel like we were meant for each other.

I’m seeing double, I mean quadruple.

Something feels different, really different.

I feel alive!

Hey, you’re like in my head.

I have a funny feeling we’re gonna spend the rest

Of our life together.

This was meant to be.

It’s kinda dark in here, isn’t it?
