Poetry: “Tabloid Papers” (from July 2009)

Tabloid Papers

Full of Lies

UFOs and alibis

Tabloid Papers

Worth a dime

That people buy them is a crime

Celeb moments are not news

But real current events give some the blues.

The rich and famous become the news,

For Tabloid Papers don’t have a clue

Endless War

Political coup(s)

A stolen election we don’t get to view

But the death of the famous

Or a celeb fight

Can keep a Tabloid in circulation

For many a night.

Innuendo and rumor

Truth vs. Lies

While mainstream papers go bankrupt

The Tabloids still thrive.
