Don’t be a Cranky!

Updated: Apr 23

This poem is in response to the constant stream of negativity and unbalanced polemic commentary we are exposed to daily from a drama seeking media.

Has the world gone mad or is it only just me.

Bad news now daily can’t see wood for the trees.

All wars, all murders, all gone to the dogs.

Negativity just normal, good news just a fog

Is it really that bad that depressive that bleak?.

Or is it newscasters' spin and the content they seek

I'm happy, not fighting, not shouting or mad

Just content with the lot or dare say even glad

So ignore the bad news the distorted and spin

Lock out the crankies and who knows, you might grin
