On The News Today - Poem by Matthew Holloway

On the news today
There is war
there is greed and poverty
there is crime and suffering
there is loss and misery
there is corruption
there is pain and anguish
there is someone profiteering
and another complaining
a campaign for equality
long since forgotten
there are always lies
a feeling of betrayal
trust is now decaying
rotting into its core
there is another war
people dying
hurt, pain, misery
religion being abused
and all we are asking
all we are waiting for
is something to smile to
before the show is over
lets hear some happy news
