Letter to the Editors


You are drowning us in a cacophony of words

your verbal vomit spewing with the delicacy of shotgun

pellets striking innocent passersby, racking up collateral

damage by the dozens while you dig deeper down the rabbit

hole of who to blame for the wrongs of the proverbial

victim of the moment


The broken news updates and inexpert opinions

water down our once trusted information

with hidden bigotry and unnecessary spice

By the time a story has been boiled down to black or white

any meat has lost all nutritional value


And yet

we have lived on this diet for decades

our malnourished generations now "educated" voters


I hoped you’ve gotten good at scooping

The shit’s about to hit the fan


No prequels yet. Why not write one?

Plenty of anger there. Love the parting shot.
