Goodbye. Jeremy Kyle even before the watershed
The knives were always out.
The point of the mass mass media
That un-containable beast ready to pounce
Mob rule, rules the mob - see them squeal -
Behind their over-sized TV’s
Ochlocracys swing every way. And that.
For the deranged, the lost and misguided
some invisible fissure
unknowable unpredictable, yet inevitable
