In the matter of time
It'll take me
To write to you, dear reader,
This major news brief
Ninety children will have starved
and,
Euphemistically,
"Gone over to the other side"

Turn back to the major story

Some controversial millionaire died
On that report
My editor, his bosses
and Their bosses can be sure
Dear readers, you will bicker among yourselves
Dividing apart further
Through latest oversized

 

Quarrel
About one man who fed division
Instead of together mourning
Those ninety children
And counting, by the second..

 

...Which might lead you all to do something about it
