Please Do Not Share Fake News

Please do not share fake news
Please do not share fake news
If you do that, we all lose
Please do not share fake news

I care about people, therefore I choose
To do my best to never share fake news
If I share something that is a lie
People may get hurt, or even die
Some people find truth uninteresting?
Against that idea, I'm protesting
Truth is more interesting than lies
Pseudoscience I despise
Flat Earth might make for fun chitchat
But Earth is a sphere, there's proof of that
Being science-minded is important, my friend
Science, everybody needs to defend
Something I need to mention
If conspiracy theorists grab your attention
You may end up thinking pandemics are fake
Not wearing a mask is a big mistake

Please do not share fake news
Please do not share fake news
If you do that, we all lose
Please do not share fake news

Everybody please, we must never forget
To develop a critical mindset
If you read an article and find yourself smitten
Remember to ask yourself why it was written
Someone may be eloquent and funny
But all they're really after is your money
Listen critically, and of course
Always remember to check the source

And please don't make the mistake
Of thinking all mainstream media stories are fake
That can make our lives just as dreary
As believing every conspiracy theory
Many news agencies have rigorous guidelines
Reporters seek the truth, not stand on the sidelines
But no one is unbiased, people make mistakes
Keep on reading, there's a lot at stake
Please do not share fake news
Please do not share fake news
If you do that, we all lose
Please do not share fake news

Is the writer known for their expertise on a matter?
The story full of facts, not just a smatter?
To seek truth, keep your emotions in check
Who else is reporting this? Take a little trek
Find out what many trusted sources have to say
Don't let your biases get in the way
The truth may make you grump and groan
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone

When you learn something is real news
It's okay to evolve and change your views
It's okay to admit when you made a mistake
And apologize if you share something fake
Fight for justice, not just seek likes
Speak out against oppression, even if people say yikes
Keep people as friends who think differently than you
Not stay in an echo chamber, learning nothing new

Please do not share fake news
Please do not share fake news
If you do that, we all lose
Please do not share fake news
