Bad News

What use a newspaper when the news is grim
Better to burn it, make the day less dim
Been like this now for years
Headlines grimmer than a soul can bear
Come on, reporters, you can do better than this
Or is it that editors won’t take a risk
We’ve heard this before
From torturers of yore
Making profits out of people’s wails
Bad news mean big sales

    Exellent take, Crispina. And so very true. It’s why I basically avoid the news as much as possible!
