552 : Don't Press Me.

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were Garbage, Imperative and Traction.

Don’t Press Me
"Koko!  Bring me my list!"

Oh my God!
They speak such garbage!
Journalists I mean.
Everything is imperative,
Indignant or Obscene.

They rail,
They rant,
They hound,
They trail.

They give traction to the lobbyist.

These merchants of cheap verbiage
I'm sure they'd not be missed.

  1. So true... and I love how you started this off and continued on with that tone.

  2. Wow! Most of what I see on major networks are paid news anchors and made up commentators. Journalists are radio,public stations and largely outside our national virus we call news.

  3. Sadly true. On the minor quibble front - did you want the apostrophe in journalist's?


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
