If it was once about this
it’ll soon be about that

They must believe this
so they don’t believe that

You must talk about this
and utterly ignore that

They must talk about this
so they don’t talk about that

You must let them act on this
in ignorance of that

They must forget the fact this
clearly means that

You must remind them of this
so they don’t remember that

We must contradict this
and contradict that

We pay you this
to write nothing about that

If they question this
you do not answer that

You must show them this
so they don’t think about that

If they still question this
you must vilify them for thinking that!

Make sure it’s always about this
and give no thought to that

There is nothing true about this
or true about that.
