it used to be me, going out clubbing...
now?
  well... drinking *** and pepsi,
solving a sudoku -
            listening to music -
   and catching meaty-moths
   with my bare hands
          while the moths are in flight...

so you start listening to internet media,
and you listen good,
   there's a broad spectrum
to digest...
           and they can't be wrong,
solo-journalism,
               the only respectable
day for a newspaper to be published?
sunday... all the other days
are blank pages for me...

anyway, the recent acid attack
in london, where kids, kids!
  kids aged 15 & 16 rode around
east london
         wrecking havoc,
injuring 5 people...

    well... i listened to mainstream media
and all they said
is that these two numb-nuts were
only doing it to steal...
        thieving? really?
using acid?
             last time i checked acid attacks
were popular in pakistan...
some honour *******...
          
funny, in america they throw ***** on
you, in europe, they throw acid...

but the fact that mainstream media is
"trying" to be neutral...
   it's a load of *******...
          if you're going to steal
something you're not exactly going
to use acid...
               i'm guessing that compared
to knives, nitric / sulfuric acid are
more expensive...
  but a thief is a scardey-cat...
            i know,
  i was drinking with this guy
  on brick lane...
       we walk into an alley and he snatches
my phone from my hand
and says that it's "his"...
  
   what happened subsequently?
  i shouted him down...
    you should see the expression
on a theif's face when you shout at them
to give your possession back...
   no, not a punch...
  
i just shouted: 'look at your guardian
angel!'...

            ****** ran off,
     and i didn't even need to punch him.

this acid attack wasn't a "standard"
act of thievary...
            mainstream media doesn't have
the ***** to call it, yawn, yet another
terrorist attack... which it was...

am i jumping to conclusions?
               not if the media is lying...
after a while,
   while building up a thick-skin...
your naiveness shrinks to the size
of a cherry seed...

             who are they fooling thinking
      that their audience is pigeon-brained?

these outlets think that they can clam
the situation down,
            by engaging in misnomer poker...
misnomer? yeah, it is misnomer poker,
not applying the correct word
to the actual thing...

                  whether noun or verb -
this wasn't an event encompassed
by to steal... but it was encompassed
by to terroriße...
                these weren't thieves,
  last time i checked, they needed
a second scooter...
    that's all they stole...
  and the fact that it happened within 90 minutes
is because they went in different
directions, once they stole the scooter...

and i even had the audacity to find
the b.b.c. respectable...
              i.t.v.? that's beyond redemption...
channel 4 is still trying
   to pretend it's "edgy"...

call this yet another event a typical case
of stealing?
       you're not calming people by lying
to them...
    last time i heard: pakistan is famous
for acid attacks.
