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 Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
