Haiku Friday: Reading the news

There are days that I have to just stop myself from checking CNN every twelve minutes. As I mentioned in yesterday's post, it just seems like there is too much-- most of it terrifying-- going on all at the same time.

Let's haiku about keeping up with the news. Here, I will go first:

I'm reading the news
Fascination and horror
It will not stop soon.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 formula and have some fun!

Too much to handle
Like some bizarre theater
Watch in small doses
More arts news and more
science news, heck, stock show news.
Anything but News.
There are some days when
the only upbeat moments are
the commercials
If I wasn’t in
PR, it would be great to
Take a break from news.

How nice it would be
To ignore the feeds and just
Hit the button snooze.

I’d enjoy the day
Without the play of all the
Loud dissenting views.

Alas, here I go
Feeling a bit low because
It’s all just a ruse.

To hear all the noise
From angry girls and boys makes
Me really hate news.

More fake new he whines,
I still love to buy the paper,
News fit to print, yes.
Keep checking to see
If my prayer has been answered
Please, is he gone yet??

Who to trust for “news?”
The urge to spin is too great.
Caveat emptor.
