I like to write my poems and prose

To try to entertain,

And so from politics I’ve chose

To usually refrain.

But now I feel the time is right

To properly address

A trend I see of late that might

Be stirring up this mess:

So many people get their ‘news’


Whose posts begin with BREAKING NEWS

And end with PASS IT ON.

The Newsfeed on their Facebook page

Is fraught with blatant lies,

And every day their growing rage

Ferments and multiplies.

They simply do not know this stuff

Is made to get their goat;

Unfortunately, they’re smart enough

To get out there and vote.
