All News Poems

'All news poems'
dear friends and my disgusting enemies
carry all news, all sorts of news
but are written as poems
as in ancient days
when poetry had its rightful place -
so, that's 'all news poems';
but I don't know if I want to read all news poems
you know
where our bombs landed on enemy territory
and how our enemies penetrated our women
and such news
in verse
in all news poems;
no, it might not be a good idea
besides we already have the Iliad and the Mahabarata
and such epics
which are such news poems
though they're all old news poems
and not really all new news poems

but all new poems might interest me a little
though, while one be certain they are new,
(or newly plagiarized)
one cannot be sure all are poems...

but back to 'all news poems' -
can we not have them
and have all new poems instead?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
