Negative News

 

It makes us nervous;

Gives bad dreams;

Fosters fears;

Lowers life’s force peaceful streams;

You hear?

 

Veil your eyes,

Shield your ears;

Shut the TVs, phones, computers;

Think of skies: cosmic vastness.

Altruism, wisdom, kindness.

Skip the news, pass on the press –

If only for a week or two.

Harmful and unwelcome, yes,

It weakens you.
