And here is the news…
Do you read the news
For worldwide views?
Or do you choose to
Follow simply to amuse?
Do you read it?
Do you listen?
Or do you ‘see’?
Or do you tend to ignore it, just like me?!
Do you follow world news to see who’s boss?
Or celeb TV for the latest goss?
Both versions of ‘news’ make me a bit cross,
They smooth over the rough giving us the ‘gloss’…
News paints a picture for me and you,
Covering imperfections, but is it true?
With the ‘touching up’ it should be clear
But instead we’re given political smear…
It’s called editing, spinning,
It’s very cleverly used,
But before we know it,
Boy, are we confused?
But use your own free will,
Make your own mind up though,
Hear both sides or better still,
Just go with the flow…
