Newsworthy?

By Alex M

Read the news? Hell, no.
Watch us bumble into war.
Future children cry.

Read the news? As if.
Starving glaciers' tears flood Earth.
Elephants forget.

Read the news? No way.
Holy books shield bigots' guns.
Reefs pale with fever.

Read the news? I won't.
Social networks judgement fair.
School choice: rich only. 

Alex M is a brother currently incarcerated.
