This is the News

This is the news
cold front of scoops
an item beats the clock
money writes the lies
meaning and time
running for the deadline

Facts are to be
stories are told
sensations must be sold
futures exchanged
manifold for one
the tyrants with the gun

This is the news
price-tag of truth
a message from the boss
world in a box
parcel of bribes 
with colour lights and lies

You know what you know
because we know
that you must not be bored
newsflash of war
pictures from hell
the action for the sale
