Flatscreen Iliad

I need culture and topics upon to write,
I am a lost journalist,
With only the history in today to find,
I sit, watch, and write what I see;
To be in an epic mix of discourse I crave the most of all.

The great wars are done and gone,
I watch them on my flatscreen tv.
The great stories are long past,
And I am left with a cautionary tale,
That was long ago explained so well.

I crave some destruction,
I hope that doesn’t seem ill to you.
The corporate man has taken away my freedom,
And to this peaceful so called world he prevails.

To today I beg you will still listen,
That we are far along a path,
It may be pre-ordained,
But, you are the leader and
To be the actual society we are is not close,
To the ideology that we must grasp,
Only the authorities we cannot trust.
