Monster

The monster is all around us,
Its power apparent yet unseen,
It influences our every interaction,
Tearing open each seam.
It is like a dragon,
Singeing us with flames of bias,
It leaves in its wake a smoke of panic,
Ashes of prejudice that cloud our vision.
Branding us with its burns
It makes apparent who is acceptable and who is ‘other’.
This monster is the media.
It scrutinises all who deviate from the norm,
Inciting hatred and fragmenting society.
