JulyPoWriMo 28

The new phase is the same as the old phase 
one step forward and infinite steps back
of course health is not the priority
grandstand where you have no ground to stand on
maybe human sacrifice is the norm
all for the sake of gross entertainment
ratings don’t matter so much as eyeballs
gouged out and replaced with new QR codes
linking to a 404 not found page
new home of confidence in the system
created dysfunction reality
the fairness doctrine could not regulate
so it was let go for the sake of lies
we couldn’t even see with our own eyes
