JOKES

By Kishi Akinsunmade

We live in a world of stand up comedy.
Where news is a joke
And bias is the remedy.
Newsbrands are now headliners
Reporting accurate rumours.

We live in a world of knock-knock jokes.
Headlines setting the tone
For insulting discrimination
Justified by the dead laughter
from a sleeping generation.

We live in a world of memes.
Where stories have been twisted
In order to fit the latest bias.
A world of pariahs
Honoured by newsletters.

We live in a world of social media.
Where our phones are the paper route,
Defying stereotypes by
Collecting news
and delivering half-truths.

We live in a world of opinion.
Where propaganda is the product of control
And diluted articles, the product of survivor’s guilt.
We trust in perspectives, with a mantra of
“You don't see me and I don't see you”.

JOKES.
A STORY WHERE WE ARE THE PUNCHLINE.
