ASK A POET



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 that’ll never end
about a world that’ll 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?

  Lol...I like it.

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