Dear Editor




the news is quite distasteful
a slap in the face to my psyche

creative writing covers the candor
swaps reality for the twist of twits

crafts burglars into car prowlers,
family terror into home invasion

headlines rail cutesy and trite
…just print the news as it is

I’ll lead my own commentariat
and choose how to perceive it

We have a similar perspective in our poems. Quite different in how it's said (I love seeing the differences) but still!
