022 – Slow News Day

Slow News Day

With everything that’s going on
At home and overseas 
Covid and disturbances 
Protestors on the streets 

Our media must prioritise
‘Tween all the sorry tales
How they will inform us and 
Remove ophthalmic scales

Today they have excelled themselves
In choices that they’ve made
Everywhere I look it’s there
Garishly displayed

In print, tv and internet 
Not civil war or crime
But the cost of plastic bags in shops
Will increase in eight months time.
