Propaganda

By Novid Shaid, May, 2011

.

Presenting events like a melodrama or soap

Rousing the masses against an abominable terror

Offloading opinions disguised as facts and info

Promoting a world view pervasively, drip by drip

Anchoring key words with an infamous persona

Generating a narrative against a villain so big

Alarming the populace with growing hysteria

Nurturing nationalism, dissension frowned upon

Dividing the world for a self-serving dividend

A closed group persists and prevails through media.
