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 the best and brightest
won't be takin the
express lane up to heaven
That's assured

There's floodin all along river roads
Mudslides washin 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 rock, muck, and sand
Can't even move to Canada without a hundred grand
The Chinese have launched a man into space
Our world's gettin to be one damned, crowded place
Shrimp boat smashed up on rough rocky cove
W. sold our XYZ's to Carl Rove
Newscaster's tellin us great big lies
Trump gets a tummy ache
and everybody cries
that's the latest word
what haven't you heard?
