The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - What could influence your decisions
What could influence your decisions
The polling companies ask several leading questions,
Biased towards their friends with a few slight suggestions,
Improper phrasing of these suggestions so their polls are skewed,
Then they publish their special findings of what you conclude.
They want to herd us together like a flock of their sheep,
This way or that way or their way to make us creep and cheap,
Then the mainstream media and the CBC try to set it in cement,
To influence us this way or that way and tell us we’re content.
As we are coerced towards their socialist communist causes,
Ideologically bent and biased and beholden in hidden clauses,
Their survey shows that their special-interest groups are right,
And their activists are even here on the web with great delight.
