The News


The news starts to my delight
so I settle into my chair.
I can’t miss my daily dose
of money, violence and despair.

Each day the news is different,
a con, disaster, or some destruction,
that satisfies my yearning for
more death and suffering and corruption.

I can’t be bothered watching news
That doesn’t strip me bare,
show me war and strife and misery
and more money, violence and despair.

About George Fripley
I am a writer who enjoys writing humour, satire, poetry and sometimes a bit of philosophy. I live in Perth, Western Australia and occasionally get a poem or article published. It's all good fun! I have two books available for unwary readers, Grudges, Rumours and Drama Queens- The Civil Servant's Manual (This contains all that anybody could ever want to know about why government runs so slowly) and More Gravy Please! - the Politician's Handbook. (available through Amazon)
