Between two channels

It is difficult
To wean my father
Away from that channel
Which apparently sees reality
With blinkered eyes
True to an opposition party;
It sees the hand
Of the leader it hates
In every crime
In the state
From chain-snatching
To sand-mining
And goes on and on
About his lack of a genuine mandate
And keeps airing the allegation
That he would not have won
But for rigging
The foolproof voting machines;
I suggest that my old man watch
The other channel too
Then he'll know
Like the blind protagonist
Of the epic
That the truth lies
Between the two
