781 - Hard Pressed

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: content, evolve & sober.

Hard Pressed

The media makes a great hullabaloo
About things they wish to pursue.
The content is skewed,
However it’s viewed,
And the truth is rarely on view.


They assume that their readers are dead,
And are wanting a distraction instead,
So the page three depicts
Some extraordinary tits
Evolved for a double page spread.


The truth is the promise, rehearsed,
In fact it’s just the reverse:
They create a great flap
That is one-sided crap,
And if watching it sober, it’s worse.

  1. Therein lies the hint...don't be sober!

  2. Anything watched sober never seems as much fun... ;)

  3. ha. it is indeed worse stopped being news about 10 or so years ago...when it became news from one side of the aisle...perspectives really....and facts went out the window for influence and entertainment...

  4. How true, be undo, stand askew...


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