DAY BY DAY

Day by day I grow wearier

Of hyperbole and hysteria,

Promoted in a media

That seems needier and greedier.

Every aggravation and alarm

That promises us harm

Is promoted with force

For our conviction of course.

Tell something often enough

And it becomes very tough

To know what is fact

Upon which we can act.

Real or rumour?

Each requires humour

To avoid going mad

And keeping us glad

That we are still living

A welcome well of giving

To all those who presume

To be prophets of doom;

Though we're each one a "dead 'un"

In their prophesied Armageddon.

So true...from national politics to the local weather forecast!

Thanks Keith. Hardly a day goes past when there isn't something
of the doom and gloom scenario being pushed at us. I wonder
just how much of it finds its way to the so-called third world with its
expanding populations and connected problems?

An excellent poem.
Thank you for this as I share your sentiments at the present time.
