Tabloids

Avoid
The paranoid,
Pessimistic androids
That write the tabloids.

They only care about statistics.
The world they present is unrealistic,
Completely and undoubtedly materialistic.
Which seems to be a common characteristic.

Sex and scandal dominate the ink.
They tell us how to act and what to think.
Rose tinted words disguise the darker shade of pink.
To keep us afloat and ensure the morale doesn't sink.

The truth is censored and diluted.
The world that we live in is to heavily polluted.
Those with power talk, the rest are forever muted.
With government support their stories can never be disputed.

something i wrote recently i was inspired by the factual basis tabloids are based on and thought i would encorporate some rhyme to add to the smoothness of the direction of the poem. hope it works let me know what you think guys :)

I'm not a huge fan of entire stanzas ending on the same rhyme because it is so harsh, but I think the material covered overshadowed that for me. The realistic nature of the topic at hand and the playful technique which you used to write it was an odd juxtaposition, but I enjoyed it.

Maybe this is the reason I feel like entirely blocking out the outside world? You'd think people would have something better t do with their lives, but instead, this IS their lives.
Just plain sad if you ask me.

Honestly. Go promote recycling, feed the hungry, or give money to the poor. You seem to have enough free time, I mean you're reading TABLOIDS aren't you?
People need to realize there is more to life than celebities.

I have to say, this sounds a little choppy to me, and it doesn't really flow as well as your other work. But, nice concept anyways! :D
