The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The UN agenda
The UN agenda
The UN wants us worked up about their agenda,
About poor places pumped out in their propaganda,
Places with foreign names we can hardly pronounce,
A famine, flood, war, earthquake, they quickly announce.
Hidden places we can hardly find on the map,
These UN socialists and Liberals in a flap,
Send $millions and men and tell them they have to stay,
On the other side of the world, hidden far away.
‘Cause we’re all such goody-two-shoe socialist types,
We want to do good and we believe their UN hypes,
Human rights activists all have their own agenda,
You listen as the media pumps propaganda.
The details of course get lost in translation,
Graphics and pictures - overt manipulation,
Get ready, hurry up, donate and subscribe,
And bring back some refugees along for the ride.
Are you listening, are you there, ‘cause it’s going on now,
Pick up your paper and you’ll find it somehow,
Please fix those problems ‘cause the UN can’t lie,
You’ll feel better afterwards though you’re taxed to the eyes.
