No News Is Good News

Or as the “Eagles” have suggested, … “Dirty Laundry”… This is my take on the news that is brought to us on a daily basis.. I hope that you like it.

    Have a great day and please,, stay out of the news!


First on the scene!!

First on the scene!!

No News Is Good News

 Teens killing teens

and car crash scenes

and planes that plunge

from the sky!


 Muggers and thieves

a widow who grieves

for her soldier,

the latest to die!


Children abusers

face their accusers

while the families of both

watch and cry!


Stock Market crashes

homes left in ashes

by detectors

that made nary a sigh!


The Middle East going crazy

our workforce is lazy.

And is he a traitor

or spy?


S.W.A.T. Teams are raiding

there’s insider trading

and Congress wants more

of our pie!


Embassy burnings

dead heroes returning

 and they expect us to swallow

the lie!


Yes, such is the news

as reported by crews

on the ground,

or in choppers on high.


But, then there at the end

a few seconds they’ll spend

to wish us

a cheerful goodbye!


And all of the blood and the gore

that they showed us before

is replaced by a gleam

in their eye!
