Haven't You Heard? - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

Our V.P shotgunned his hunting buddy
thought he was a bird
Missing teen confirmed dead
Haven't you heard?
News at eleven
All our best and brightest children
won't be goin up to heaven
That's assured

There's flooding all along river roads
Mudslides wash away heavy loads
1300 drown on ferry boat barge
The poor get more of nothin while the rich live large
Village gone
buried deep
under mud, rock, and sand
Can't move up to Canada without a hundred grand
The Chinese have launched a man up into space
Our world's gettin to be one very crowded place

Shrimp boat smashed up on rough rocky cove
W. sold his XYZ's to Carl Rove

Newscaster's tellin us great big lies
Bossman gets a tummy ache
and everybody cries

that's the word
what haven't you heard?
