On the News

Today we were told the news
As it happened
And when more happened
They told us the news again

At the current rate of news
the energy runs out quite soon
A quick flash in the Pan of concern
replaced by a few murders

Car accidents consumed the next day
And traffic troubles when
Quite a few hours afterwards
A child was run over

Consumption was rife
And so was extinction
Their quid pro quo relationship
left out of the news

Facts aside
sacrificed to entertainment
The truth
starts making the news

Democracy

At least 10 percent of Germans
Have. O sense of history

And the 50 odd percent
Who voted an idiot
To be their most prescient

Should be suspended next time
From making the effort,
to take the trouble
To cast an uninformed vote
