Culling through the News

It’s hard for me to read the news.

I get quite addled.  I confuse

the facts among the words they say

with propaganda sent my way.

“News” is often just a jumble..

thrown together… clash… and tumble…

.. makes a doubter out of me,

doubting all I hear and see.

I still believe the world is round.

I don’t think aliens have been found.

And when the headlines scream at me,

I try to think quite ration’lly.

But it gets harder ev’ry day

to sift through all the words they say.
