Here's a challenge for this weekend if you'd like to try it.

From the internet, choose ONE news story (of any nature) and write a poem about it.

I posted one from CNN called about the color of the galaxy...

Great idea for a challenge, Sharon.

I'll take it and a look at your piece.

If this is all the world has to offer, I want a refund on my life.

The news article is here

The poem:

the little prince walked around the block
thinking of thoughts beyond usual capacity..
"how should i escape a life of privilege?
my mother deceased, my father swamped
my brother on every teens mind
im rarely heard from
surely im not immune to such reports?
perhaps im just invisible
everyone is so captured by my brothers beauty
and i pass under the radar."
the little prince continued to a pub
the londoner's right of passage..
"ill show my friends im above the royalty of my name"
smoke a little of this.. try a little of that
"im the prince, why would i be so different?"
alas, the poor prince Harry was caught
doing deeds the Queen shudders at...
to rehabilitation the prince now walks..
now hes just back alone with his thoughts..
