The News

Despite its name, there’s nothing new.
A weather man with whitened teeth
Appeases us with pleading eyes,
Begging us as he smiles through,
Pointing at the bluer skies.

Trump an angry caricature
Same old headlines, same shit hairline,
Talking crap and reeling back
Insists on live, oversteps each line.
Our own PM is not much better
Seems the royal family’s sick.
Won’t admit somewhere I wish
This virus will just hit the rich.

Knowing it’s unlikely, knowing what our history says.
What logic and utility have done and called it fair.
The numbers lower where it’s poorer, are they being tested?
In cages, two by two by four, unrightfully arrested;
Treated them like animals now nobody is protected.
