A News Report is Really Awful Poetry
The NaPoWriMo theme today
Is one from which to keep away:
From snatches of a news report,
A poem found is what one ought
To try compiling; but from that
Results would be quite pancake-flat.
For news reporters have no skill,
At poetry; it makes one ill
To see how little each one knows
Of even penning simple prose,
While subjects news reports contain
Are from a drain, a brain to strain.
Some politicians have been booed;
A pop-star pictured in the nude;
Unfaithful partners, crime and drugs,
And sports results at which one shrugs;
No, really! I won’t waste the time –
I’ll stick to Really Awful Rhyme.
