morning news

a poem by Dale Costello, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

Printed text upon a page
characters defining love and rage
medium held to crystal ball
world economies still fall
West Africa starves
king flies free of mortal cage,
digital access makes its way
marriage just asking to be gay
London spends on jubilee and games
politicians call each other names
first world children live third world
apathy lies where it wont say,
tennis kicks where it misses
weather woman delivers soft rainy kisses
elements fall to human floor
in a vacuumed land off-shore
its snakes prevailing in chaos
all device now silent in its hisses,
an age held to fiscal need
the morning news will bleed
promotion with despair
the politics of why we care
savouring the market
with only bytes to feed.
