Waiting for the Truth
by DCDave

Our cover-ups have such dimensions and layers
A program is needed to follow the players.
First we have magazine exposÚs
Appropriate to the cover-up phase
Of scandals involving mere nickels and dimes
And licentious actions that aren't even crimes.
The light shone on these cases is a mite queer
Showing us less there than it would appear.

But when to the next phase the cover-ups pass,
To murders high up and in buildings en masse,
We're shown the true psy-ops sophistication
Of a locked-up press in a locked-down nation,
Where all critics with platforms are playing a role
From a script with the title of "Damage Control."
Though the plot remains wrapped in obscurity,
One thing is certain: It's a tragedy.

David Martin
