so much news until the news is no more.
war has broken out, a thousand unnamed lives, not a mention,
yet Madonna and Lady Gaga are featured today,
for people want to know
whatever truly doesn’t matter,
or, at least, the pundits tell me so.
news, news, and news upon news,
twenty-four/seven, the news machine spews,
exhausting itself with more hours of news
than there are hours of life,
filling the time by un-filling the mind,
and slowly we watch and slowly we change,
anger begets anger, hate begets hate,
working away, wearing us down,
the primal within,
the anxiety within,
the frustration within,
it all is beckoned forth by the electronic voice,
magnifying, justifying all the darkness within,
seducing, distorting, twisting and tempting,
like the reporter in the garden who brought Eve the news,
abandoning the truth for the sake of the cause …
… and of course, for the sake of the ratings, the master of all.
