News Paper Blues


I read the daily paper
To catch up on the news
I don’t know why I bother
Because it just gives me the blues

The head-lines say a murder
Happened late last night
So I read the story
Hoping it will shed some light

They say the motive was robbery
It was committed at the same time
I don’t know why6 I read the papers
It seems it’s just filled with crime

I guess it’s go to know the news
Read it if you choose
But for me I think I’m done
I’m tired of the news PAPER BLUES

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
