News and Views – by Laura Crean – Poem 9 NaPoWriMo 2015

News and Views

News, news, so much news
There’s now whole channels giving their views
Polls and statistics
Complicated terms
Burrowing into our brains
Like parasitic worms
Talking petty politics
While human souls are drowned
Far across the planet
Where children’s cries resound
But we aren’t kept informed
About such people’s plight
We don’t hear of all their struggles
We just ignore their fight
And talk about the mundane
Who said what to whom
Completely useless rhetoric
Like a fly buzzing round the room
We know that it’s annoying
And we try to flick it out the way
We don’t see the fire-breathing dragon
That the world needs to finally slay
When will the world’s priorities
Be discussed and broadcast for all to see?
When will the lies and propaganda
Give way to truth and liberty?
