The public is so lost, apathetic, ignorant and apolitical, politicians
can now, through gesture [a smile, a knowing look, one to another]
openly signal that what issues from their mouths is untrue. Useless platitude.
More importantly, they know they lie, and know that we know they lie.
It is an oligarchic snub, a fuck-you in your direction.
It is the confidence of the unopposed, the surety that comes of numberless lies unchallenged.
