The state media will not broadcast
Any criticism of its state nor the state
Of it. There is silence in the corridors
Where decisions are made in rooms
Behind closed doors, windowless squares
Without a view of the world as it is.

The state media has been hijacked
By the rightwing government of the
Day, in power for thirteen years, its
Main weapon austerity – genocide
By poverty and sickness. It does
Not broadcast this fact, masquerades
As a caring moderate benevolence.

The state media was once not so.
Now it broadcasts lies.
