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.
