No News

As soon as we swore in the very worst
of presidents, I started gulping news.
I watched the talking heads and faces first
and soon expanded reading, seeking clues
and understanding. Knowing we’re self-cursed
did little to assuage, and truth abused
compounded tragedy. Of late I’ve ceased
attending news that nourishes the beast.

(Ottava Rima)
