BBC Nation Speak Peace_

I hear BBC news,

it’s noise deluge,

disorientation, and generalized hate.

That’s quite an achievement,

in this day and age,

So, I watch, read and listen,

and learn some confusion,

plenty of opinion,

compote of hateful rhetoric.

I need to tune out!

Today’s events,

developments and pissing contests.

Tomorrow’s screwed.

This is “The News”.
