    dotsASK A POETdots
    -------------------------------------------


    I went to see a poet and
    he told me you would know it
    so I came to ask the question
    why is the news so depressing?
    ABC, NBC, CBS
    They are all giving me symptoms of PMS.
    Moody when I see that the
    rich are getting richer,
    and the poor are getting oil from
    Venezuela to heat their homes.
    I have crying spells when I hear
    the statistics of yet another
    drug addicted, sex convicted,
    person has harmed a child.
    The breaking news is always
    about murder and mayhem,
    Homicide and suicide
    Shootings and robberies,
    rapes and violence.
    Every sixty minutes is
    filled with doom and gloom,
    As the continents are shifting
    and the polar ice capes melting
    The warmth of the whole
    globe is in disgrace.
    My moods are swinging as
    Dan Rather and Charles Gibson
    Play ping pong with bad news.
    Im plagued with fatigue
    When BBC, CNN
    and even the MTV news
    covers stories about a war thatíll never end
    about a world thatíll never transcend beyond fighting
    for a strip of land that
    Jesus and Mohammed taught
    To be peaceful on.
    The only break we get
    Is when celebrities break up
    And make up, and wake up
    In the bed of the another
    celebrity.
    If the poet is confounded,
    and you look befuddled and astounded,
    who would have the answer
    to save me from
    a midol overdose?

    You forgot all the insanity about Anna Nicole Smith, though...

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
