Poet or Propagandist?

by Catherinebutterfly

My sister was asked: are you a poet or a propagandist?
Because she spoke against the presidents political beliefs
She called him a crook as well as a thief.
A creature lower than a dog.
Greedier than a hog.
With all his under handed work, you know that wasnít all.
But the brother felt she was out of line.
Thatís one thing I must say my opinion is
he should be doing time.


ďWe as a free people have the right to speak our mind.
Since the voice of the people is allowed to speak out,
She said what she felt and she felt what she said.
Opinions donít mean a thing, then or now.
Yet we go forwards as a voice.
Since we got a choice.
Brother poet put her down, tried to slapped her
With the humiliation of: you got no rights.
While Mr. President Stays in the light.
While all his folks here at home are fighting for their lives.
Old boy declares heís a follower of Christ.
I wonder does he mean the anti-christ
These kinds of folks want us to seal our mouths
And let others steal our rights.
But not here brother,
We will always fight for our lives and our rights.

I am with my sister one hundred percents.
Why occupy the seat, wasting time.
If you are not going to use it and youíve got the mind.
Get off the pot.
Donít make any sense that you always keeping it hot.

Thatís wasnít the purpose of designing the pot.
Pointing to the massive amounts of propaganda
Spewed by government and institutions around the world, 
propaganda system did its job partially but not entirely.

The Propaganda Among educated people it worked very well.
Thatís why so many folks are living this earthly hell.
Their mouths are seal until,
It hit home then they want to cry
They donít know what went wrong.
With eyes they canít see.

With ears they canít hear.
Now their lives at stake and they are about to die
Question is everybody wanna know why.

Among the more educated of the population,
The government's propaganda is accepted unquestioningly.
Keep shutting our mouths and freedom of speech will be history.
Propaganda often works better on
The educated than on the uneducated
The educated read more,
So they receive more propaganda.
But in the end how much of it can they handle.
They have jobs in management, media, and academia
And therefore work in some capacity as agents of
the propaganda system--and they believe what
the system expects them to believe.
So the educated folks are just as deceived.
By and large, they're part of the privileged elite,
And share the interests and perceptions of those in power
Even if they know they cheat..
Yes the brother asked my sister is she a poet or a propagandist
