NaPoWriMo Day 2: Fake News

We share and we share and we share

But we don’t care

Where the words came from

Which mouth spewed the rhetoric

That currently resonates

With our own bitterness

Which bilious belly

Heaved and hurled this ‘news’

Onto the world stage.

We snap and snarl and chomp and bite

Only caring that we are right

Regardless of

Fact checking

Snopes snooping

Hoax hopping

Sensationalist snot

Drip drip dripping

From noses stuck in

Everywhere.

When did we forget

How to be kindly critical?
