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.
