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 muck, rock, and sand
Can't move up to Canada without a hundred grand
The Chinese have launched a man into space
Our world's sure gettin to be one 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
Emperor gets a tummy ache,
and everybody dies

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