media coverage

while syria bombs homs
what is america doing with it's drones
are the bombs in syria less deadly than ours
or are the eye's of the media aimed at what 
our leaders want us to see
truly the terrorist live in terror
they sowed the wind and reaped the whirlwind 
but who is there to ask them to surrender
are they to be moved to reservations
without oil or water but a broken spirit
and wounded knee while the media
treats them like savages
a crowd going wild over a few books burning
lets face it; they chose this issue to unite
they have no diplomatic style except to say
were staying conservative in our own way
that is what i see. 
that is what the media wants me to see

    Interesting poem and it seems objective! I do know that media only lets us see what it wants us to. About my Monza. I am pretty sure it was close to dead when we bought it. My hubbie checked the stuff out for me but I think they were hiding the engine problem from me!!
