Breaking News - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Morning b'fast without a brewing cup of coffee
and the breaking news is incomplete.

I keep on scrolling the T.V. Channels
to see the news.
There is not even a single channel
which didn't go without a breaking news.

Today crimes are increasing at alarming speed
medias alert the people in a span of seconds
as the technology is so advanced.
but the criminals mind work much faster
that they also use the latest technology.

Every channel is flooded with breaking news
Crimes, corruption, natural calamities,
hollywood, business, sports etc

Today, no news is so shocking
as every now and then there is someone killed.
And when high alert is announced
we get the message immediately
which will keep the people off the road
and thus danger can be averted.

Technology is so fast developed that
just sitting at home
we get news around the world.

Just imagine the days
when newspaper and radio were only
the source of news.
People patiently waited to hear the news
which comes at a particular time.
Those days we don't get the
breaking news very often as we get today.
In those day crime were either less
or many crimes went unreported.
Today with every heartbeat at least one
crime is being committed.
Then breaking news play the role.

News has changed our thoughts
it make the people aware of their rights
and how one can be alert
and what can be done if crime is being committed.
News have changed the insight of the people.
People have become bold
and positive in approach.

Million Thanks to the scientists who
contributed their day and night of their life for
bringing the latest technology available to us
and made our life more comfortable.

    Truly said, the modern technology has made us cautious and on the other hand criminals also have become cautious but the positivity is more. (Report) Reply

    Congratulations to you. Happy to see your poem as poem of the day.
    World has shrunk into a tiny sphere with all the modern communications, internet, and media responding instantly to events. We are able to respond to storms and disasters more effectively because of breaking news. Your poem describes beautifully how technology plays a great role in all this. (Report) Reply

    Breaking news, skull cracker news
    Minute by minute, hour by hour
    And so many channels to choose
    Before the morning shower
    The media barrage shocks my soul
    With news that titillates or enrage
    Gone are the good ol' days of the past
    When we had only one Channel to engage..........

    Nowadays, channels are competing for eyeballs and most of us do suffer from this breaking news, syndrome and the need to get a emotional high and then feel helpless at every atrocity/crime committed far far away from our drawing room couch. A good thought provoking poem by Madam (Report) Reply

    I would say that the breaking news on a daily basis is very unsettling but who can afford to be as oblivious as an ostrich with its head buried in the sand..it's best to know what's going on in our world and learn how to deal with it..good poem.. (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem. Wonderful to see it as poem of the day. Yes life now a days start with breaking news. Sadly it is all the time some crime, killing or war news making head lines. Things that I do not always want to see or hear. I am so glad for the off button on remote control. But still I am thankful to the techno genius. Much good has been done with it. With out it I wouldn't be connecting to you! (Report) Reply
