The Digital Frontier – Bullshit Two Point Zero

We get our news in headlines and trending quotes
Despotic Tyrants hack computers to sway our votes
Egomaniacs trump their worth from their ivory towers
Politicians line their pockets with money that is ours
Whilst the fat cat bankers and the Global Corporation
Ruin our economies and sell our personal information

It seems the Arab Spring has sprung and broken
And Twits and Tweets though loud and outspoken
Have failed to cast an illuminating light
On the refugees and their desperate plight

But we all did our bit, clicked and ticked and joined a group
That added our opinion and thoughts to the digital soup
So is technology backing a new wave of Cyber-Activation?
Is this really People Power… or just Human Corporatisation?
