#132 (I really hate the news today)

I really hate the news today

an earthquake killed a dozen

relentless feeds, my phone keeps buzzin’

it’s all pitch black, no white or grey

I really hate the news today

as hundreds killed each other

my mouth concrete, my feet are clay

but most don’t even bother

I really hate the news today

white leaders turn to tyrants

the children lost all will to play

their parents banned – they’re migrants

I really love my friends today

escape the ever-crushing press

our minds already in a mess

we joke and laugh and dance and slay

the terrors we put on delay

3rd March 2017
