Mislead

Mislead

It’s been quite a while
Since I’ve watched TV
And what intrigues most
Is commercials I see

Thirty second spots
Telling you what you need
Just like Inception
Planting the seed

A trip to Cancun
You’ll be happy there
Drinks on the beach
And not have a care

A new video game
You get to pretend
That you’re a real hero
You fight and defend

You need this car if
You want them to think
That you’re rich and get
A pretty girl’s wink

I can’t help but feel
We’re being mislead
It’s not about joy
It’s all about $bread$

The ones who put on
This ongoing farce
Their care for your joy
Is really quite sparse

They’re not driven ‘cause
They want you content
Their sole motivation’s
The almighty cent

They mislead you to
Believe that you need
All of these things
That just feed your greed

They encourage you
To just think inward
Trying to make
Your selfishness stirred

Half-minute spots
From phonies and liars
Hoping that you
Will be their next buyers

Don’t be mislead
By good looking actors
Exotic locations
And other rich factors

They’re lying to you
You don’t need their wares
Do not let your wants
Coincide with theirs

See through the veil
Of music and lights
Shallow joy and
Misleading delights

    Excellent Miro, so true, if only more could see beneath the ‘veil’ of Illusion as to ‘Why’ we need the ‘Things’ we buy… When I get my head back into gear I will post you a link to a similar post about News I wrote some years ago..
    Apologies for just getting around to answer you and view your links,, But I am just shaking off a nasty flu-type virus which I never ever get.. Yet this one knocked me for 6..
    Take care and thank yo for your visits.. 🙂
