NaPoWriMo Day 28 – An Angry Little Poem today

Really need to stop
Watching cable news

 

Entertainer Journalist

His reasonable tone of voice
In no way mitigates
The darkness in his speech

The kind of guy
You’d share a beer with
Risking the chance of poison

Clever with words
Not so much with ideas
Very willing to discuss his values

A modern take on an old notion
But lacking the honest scowl
A smile keeps the prey distracted

His willingness to take
Is exceeded only by his ability to feel
Self-righteous while taking

Claims journalist credibility
Hiding behind entertainer accountability
Performing both with ability scant

Embarrassing to look upon
More so, we likely made him
If enough ignore, he may go away
