THE FLAVOUR OF TRUTH
by John Yeo
The Leader has declared the virus is dead!
A cure discovered, but where’s the proof?
The media refute the lies, however widespread
barely contain the flavour of truth.
People are testing positive, rumours are shed.
The opposition has issued a dramatic reproof
Leaving the population with a feeling of dread,
Our future is in the realms of dishonest misuse
of power that corrupts the soul by the head
Words that barely contain the flavour of truth,
Their Leader has declared the virus is dead.
