A WILDFLOWER BLOSSOMS
It’s all there the heartbreaking issues
Of how a father loses mind and heart
And kills a child

There too the scandals in features
One man takes another to wed
To bed

For shame the terrorist who shuns freedom
To riddle his bullets in serious
Disasters


The media, mass today generates
So much heartbreak for us
To bear


Least a wildflower blossoms sweetly so
There's non but the poet
Such news to scatter

  5. Oh how true. Only doom and despair seem to be reported, and the search for good news is bleak.

    2. Once the news was old and of some other place when we heard so we didn't worry but after a hundred years or more of global politics and the ugly media bursting on the scene to unquieten us thousands of mile away we wake fearful every morning. Wild flowers blooming on the TV doesn't attract advertisers only calamity does!
