News Appetizers: A Summer’s Day is Better

The news is much easier to handle in sonnet form, yes?

When to gun control the country looks
Joe Biden is called into help
While two more school victims enter the books
And Pakistanis die with barely a welp

Meanwhile the Oscars make news
Lincoln is clearly the fave
And the flu is here to give us the blues
If you Google it we’re in for a wave

Three women of Kurdish descent
In Paris were slain yesterday
And here’s three more cliffs here to torment
Can Congress this crisis belay?

The moral of all of these stories
Is that everyone’s forgotten their mores

By [E] Sally Lawton

My food groups are cheese, bacon, and hot tea. I like studying cities and playing with my cat, Buffy.
