    How many gods should we criticize
    I'll vegetate while you scrutinze
    The realization being digitized
    The Revelation won't be televised

    How many devils do you sanctify
    In the spirit of that evil eye
    So many channels demonized
    How you living deified

    How many preachers hypothesize
    Salvation themes mo' money buys
    Bean pie high in the sky
    Praying that the eagle flies ~

    Too many folk have sold their souls
    Too many lies are being told
    Are we that trivialized
    Disinformation on the rise

    How many dreams have we to lose
    How many minutes more to snooze
    How many more lives will it cost
    Surrender man let God be boss

    How many scribes will be ostracized
    Before we poets galvanize
    The realization being digitized
    The Revelation won't be televised

    The revelation won't be televised, our relationship with God is not on air. Quite an insightful scribe brotha. The title is the crowning glory for this one.
