The Dimming White Spot Fades To Black

The tool of propagandists, television;
the self important electronic nag.
Vainly disseminating information
and, trying to put your mind in their bag.
We found all their transmissions were informing
and fed on the truth that they were broadcasting.
Enlightenment came to us through TV,
bringing worlds we would not otherwise see!
But a web was spun of free information
and narratives from differing sources.
No one chose the horses for the courses
which gallop'd towards our new liberation.
TV the medium of idiots
now only appeals to sad vidiots.
