Wildest Dreams (a villanelle) {re-posted}

No, nothing’s truly as it seems
despite what you’ve been told to think  
it’s way beyond your wildest dreams  
    
the modern world is stuffed with memes    
which float around and interlink    
and nothing’s truly as it seems    
  
the media gobs amazing scenes    
that make you rub your eyes and blink -  
it’s way beyond your wildest dreams    
  
and if you check the stats and beans    
it won’t add up, it’s out of sync    
for nothing’s truly as it seems    
  
and everywhere you look it steams    
with lies, corruption - smell the stink -  
it’s way beyond your wildest dreams.  
  
And those who run this foul regime?  
They really should be in the clink    
for nothing’s truly as it seems    
it’s way beyond your wildest dreams.
