Paranoia on Sale for Ya!

Media hyped up the snow forecast panic in T.O. with photos like this on Feb. 23, 2012.
Next day... there was hardly any snow at all. Photo courtesy of KISS 92.5.

What’s up with all this constant scare—
Why not to act;
What not to wear;
Where not to play;
How not to write;
When not to help;
Whom not to fight?

What’s up with all these threats
and panic?
Making us all stressed out and manic—
It’s gonna rain!
It’s gonna snow!
This gives you that!
That hurts you so!

We are drowning in advertising.
To be afraid is mesmerizing.
Fear is on sale—
Locally made;
Take a test drive,
Don’t be afraid!
