The news draws me
Like a dieter
To a bag of cheap cookies
It isn’t healthy
And they won’t taste good
But I’ll eat the whole bag
In shame-making compulsion
And then feel slightly ill
For the rest of the day

  1. I watch news 24/7. I watch all views carefully. Know your enemy (if you insist on having one).
    Our only real enemies are ignorance, Intolerance, and apathy.
