The News

The News on CNN

Mind numbing prattle of the talking heads
two days behind the terrorists who fled
no other news compares.

We wait
as the authorities negotiate
in French
attempting to connect
the most important thing
remain politically correct.

The president now comes on the air
“In case of future acts
we should prepare,” he says.
Such sound advice, these words
hard to sound wise
so little time to think
no time to write a speech
he could have used one
these words so mundane.

What could be said
a time like this?
Not really all that much to talk about
it’s all been said
time and again
condemning terrorism
"We want world peace!"
The beauty pageant mantra.
