The Newspaper


Fancy tea or coffee? – I’ll put on the kettle
The newspaper feed us with lubricated rubbish
As they try to unsettled the already settled
With elongated imaginative lists of excessive wishes

Today I have a nightmare about swine flu
Tomorrow I shall dream of military coups
All the stereotyping about gender inequality
But no one is typing about gender opportunity

Breakups and makeups
Splashes and cruises
Lashes and bruises
Drama wrapped with adventurous saga

Soon I will change my name to ‘Lady Stagger’
Dye my hair blonde to avoid looking like ‘Lady Haggard’
And everyday it’s the same old story
A bit of sadness with a touch of glory

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
