Waiting for a car inspection,
The drug of morning television
Overdosing the waiting area.
Bad weather,
Government shutdown,
Terrorist bombings,
Racial intimidation,
Sports controversy.
How is it this way,
Negativity on top of more
Sitting under such news
Is bringing a media-sick
Rivaling the worst drugs,
At least metaphorically
For I’d hate to be accused of hyping
My disdain for the news
In the same way that they
Show life.
