The News


I personally never watch the news,
Coz it always makes me sad,
The weather at the end is fine,
But even that is bad....
Murders, Crime and child abuse,
Will NEVER make me smile,
So I always switch it over,
And watch something worth my while ....
It only puts the fear in us,
At least 5 times a day,
So do yourself a favour,
And turn your head away......
I know we cant escape the truth,
But I'd rather be a stranger,
Unless it turns up on my doorstep,
And puts my 2 boys in danger.....
Some of you might agree with me,
But some of you may not,
I just don't want to hear about,
Innocent people being shot......
Not to mention terrorists,
Or victims being abused,
But hey it truly is your choice,
If you choose to watch the news.
