THE 6:00 NEWS

Diplomatic Immunity,
Systematic impunity.
Juvenile rehabilitation,
Infantile humiliation.
Convalescent moderation,
Societal degradation.
Inviolate affirmation,
Venerated consolation.

United States Presidency,
Political debauchery.
Adolescent malnutrition,
Generational inanition.
Vehicular mutilation,
Mechanical obliteration.
Personality - addiction,
Amphetamine - benediction.

Judicial miscommunication,
Executive alleviation.
Congressional fraudulence,
Inadmissible evidence.
Constitutional hypocrisy,
Dictatorial democracy.
Overly oppressed overviews,
Welcome to the Six O'clock News

Sit back with some popcorn and enjoy the show.

LOL Every word of the above is true my friend.

Boy am I ready for some good news! Recently a 2 1/2 year old blonde cutie was taken into the desert, doused with gasoline and set on fire!  By her father! He claims he was abused as a child and wasn't responsible for his actions! (I don't swear or I'd tell you what I think should be done to him!)  I liked this poem..it's truth rings clearly!

Michael - An accurate description of
what we are bombarded with nightly.
Makes me want to change the channel.
Or better yet ... turn it off.
Unfortunately, it is a fact of life.
Will it change?  
I believe the change is coming.

Sadly true, Michael. I try to avoid the news whenever possible. Well done poem.

Michael you've described this well!  Matter of fact we hear so little good news anymore, that I don't even turn the news on anymore!

Thanks guy for allowing me to "vent" a little.  LOL, I just wish there was more good news coming to view sometimes.  I sure thank God for Passions, I get the best news possible on a daily dose here.
